Viking Coin Necklace
David Vanderveen's family and his wife Sarah's family are 100% Dutch and 50% Frisian. Friesland is a unique province in Northern Netherlands that speaks the only medieval language in Europe: Frisian. It is essentially the Angles language, nearly identical to Old English but as if spelled by Dutch people. Around 800 AD King Redbad ruled Friesland, which encompassed the European coast from Denmark to Belgium. Frisians were Vikings--raiders and traders. They created the first Dark Ages currency, the sceat, to enable trade. This coin is a Viking coin made from an original mold. It is 18k gold and valuable regardless of currency. Wear it with pride. Each gold medallion necklace is custom made to order here in Laguna Beach, California.
