Viking longboats were remarkable watercrafts employed by the ancient Norse seafarers, measuring approximately 28 to 30 meters in length and designed to accommodate over 100 men. These ships were renowned for their remarkable speed and manoeuvrability, reaching impressive speeds of up to 14 knots.
With their shallow drafts and detachable rudders, longboats possessed the ability to navigate shallow rivers, enabling them to effortlessly explore and raid distant territories.
The Isle of Man's Viking heritage is deeply intertwined with its history. Once known as the Kingdom of Mann, it fell under the rule of Norse leaders, including the King of Dublin and the Earls of Orkney. This Viking influence left a lasting impact, shaping the island's culture and traditions.
The noble gold coin boasts a captivating history that dates back to the 14th century. Its origins can be traced to King Edward III of England, who introduced this currency as a symbol of great wealth. Featuring the regal portrait of the monarch, it held considerable value in the terms of trade and commerce, signifying the kingdom's robustness and economic stability.
The obverse of the coin displays a right-facing depiction of Queen Elizabeth II, wearing a tiara. Additionally, the inscription on this coin reads as follows:
ELIZABETH II ISLE OF MAN 2009
This Viking-themed reverse design showcases a legendary Viking longboat, affectionately nicknamed 'Thusly,' with four seagulls emerging alongside the vessel. The Isle of Man's flag proudly waves at the top of the ship. Additionally, the rim of the coin showcases a unique Viking knit pattern, while the legends inscribed on the coin provide additional details.
