This silver and copper penny might have been issued if Lief Ericsson’s Vinland colony in North America had been successful. Instead the Viking colony was abandoned after a few years and European knowledge of North America was forgotten for nearly 500 years. The coin is struck in a style typical of Viking coins. A helmeted Lief Ericsson is pictured on one side with the legend “Lief Ericsson” on one side. A stylized cross and the legend “Vinland Moneta” is on the other. The coin is available either in silver or copper and is Uncirculated with an "antiqued" finish. It is an interesting and historical fantasy coin.
