Details

This stunning range of coins celebrates the 1000th anniversary of Canute's coronation. 

A Viking warrior, Canute the Great hailed from Denmark, and seized England's throne in the early 11th century.

At its peak, his empire included England, Denmark, Norway, and parts of Sweden. Canute is perhaps most famous for the story of Canute and the waves. In this tale, which conveys the king's humbleness and humility, Canute had his throne brought to the beach and commanded the waves to halt - obviously without success. The meaning of this incident was to portray that a king's powers were nothing compared to the power of God.
