Description:

Remembered as the man ill-prepared to deal with the Viking threat, this is a genuine coin of Anglo-Saxon king Aethelred II (978-1016AD) - dubbed Aethelred the Unready! Aethelred paid huge sums of 'Danegeld' to keep the Vikings at bay, with hoards of his coins founds in Scandinavia and Baltic region. In VF, this particular silver penny bears an excellent portrait of the much-maligned Anglo-Saxon monarch.
