I’m making some space in my collection and will offload a number of coins that don’t quite fit in there anymore. I’d love to see them find a good new home!


Here, I’m offering an interesting 11th century "Saxon Penny". These coins were struck anonymously under the early Salian emperors and used mostly for trade with the eastern and northern neighbors of the German empire. Hoard finds imply that most "Saxon Pennies" went to the Baltic coasts and islands. If you fancy, you can consider this a Viking connection.


The coin for sale shows the typical peck marks (little cuts to test the silver) and the hammered-up edges characteristic for this type. The traces of white mineralic residue, which are almost invisible in hand, might possibly come off when putting the coin in distilled water – I haven't tried, though. The coin was purchased from Knopik in July 2020.


Here is the complete attribution:

"Saxon penny", anonymous regional issue, under the early Salian emperors (Conrad II – Henry IV), ca. 1025–1060 AD, struck in the Saale region close to Naumburg. Obv: legend of wedges, strokes and X-P, cross with pellets and crescents in quadrants. Rev: legend of wedges and C-V-X-[?] (CRVX–type), cross of wedges. 16mm, 1.08g. Ref: Type Sal D 2:1: Dannenberg 1337 var (X-P on obv.).
