It is said that coins are the result of an offering that was made in a swamp, probably a sacrifice to a pagan god. At the beginning of the ninth century, the Danes were still pagans who worshipped Odin, Thor and the rest of the Norse gods

During an archaeological investigation conducted on a Jutland site in Denmark, more than 250 coins were found thanks to the work done by archaeologists with the use of an excavator and metal detectors in a huge swamp around the city of Ribe.

On the back of the coin appears a deer that seems to kiss a snake. On the deer is distinguished the Sun or moon and, between the legs, three intertwined triangles.
