Viking Tie Tack

BE STRONG WHEN YOU ARE WEAK.

BE BRAVE WHEN YOU ARE SCARED.

BE HUMBLE WHEN YOU ARE VICTORIOUS.

-VIKING PROVERB

This silver coin from the Isle of Man features a Viking longboat, a winged helmet, breastplate and an assortment of weapons including two crossed swords.  These coins are valuable and so beautiful. 

Why are Vikings on a coin from a British-owned island?:

Between about AD 800 and 815, the Vikings came to the Isle of Man chiefly for plunder; between about 850 and 990, when they settled there, the island fell under the rule of the Scandinavian Kings of Dublin; and between 990 and 1079, it became subject to the powerful Earls of Orkney.
