Cnut Silver Penny 1016-1035AD Shaftsbury
17mm, 0.94g

Cnut was a Dane, the son of Sweyn Forkbeard and was king of England, Denmark and Norway, having won the throne of England from Edmund II (Ironside) after centuries of Viking raids.
Three main types of coins were struck during the reign of Cnut, the quatrefoil , pointed helmet and short cross (this coin being an example), each type having regional variations even from the same mint and moneyer.
