Viking silver penny coin – British Museum
Eric BloodAxe  885 – 954 King of Northumbria

According to legend, he killed all his brothers one by one, and as you can see, his coins depict a sword running through the middle and the lettering ERIK REX

The replica coins that each pupil strikes in every Viking workshop look exactly the same as they are authentically made.
