Abstract:

An article relating to Gråmanstorp church in Scania in southern Sweden shows some coins which were said to be found outside the church by the church guardian Mårten Nilsson. The find is probably connected to the installation of a heating plant in 1937. The photo shows coins from the twelfth to the nineteenth century.

Ett ovanligt trettonhundratalsfynd från kvarteret Tranan i Malmö / Cecilia von Heijne

Nordisk Numismatisk Årsskrift 2. ser. 1 (2014) p. 109-125

Abstract:

In the year 1981 a hoard was found during archaeological research at Malmö the district called ‘The Crane’ (Tranan). The 45 coins had been deposited at an estate close to a kiln. The composition of the hoard is unique compared to contemporary Scanian hoards. All the coins were small Swedish bracteates of the type ‘Hohlpfennig’, some of them were of a type which may be Norwegian as well and finally two coins may actually be North German ‘Hohlpfennigs’. But there were no coins from Lund, which was the central Scanian mint of the time. Perhaps this fact could be connected with the event when the Danish King Valdemar Atterdag reconquered Scania in 1360? The hoard has one coin of the type LL XXVII, which is the youngest of Magnus Ericsson’s two-sided coins. Probably it is the subtype LL XXVII 7: a. The composition of the hoard indicates some West Swedish contacts. 20% of the coins were bracteates with rays in their borders from Lödöse, South of present day Göteborg, and more than a third of the bracteates were of a type (LL XXIX), which probably partly were struck in Norway. The composition of the hoard is similar to a hoard from Landskrona in Scania and a hoard found at a corpse at the field of Korsbetingen outside Visby, Gotland, dated to the battle of 1361. It is interesting to see the hoard in a wider context. During Magnus Ericssons reign various monetary regions with separate monetary systems were existing in Scania and Sweden. Coins from Lund only rarely reached Sweden and – vice versa – few Swedish coins were used in the Scanian provinces. But when Magnus Ericsson was losing power the number of Swedish coins was increasing in the Scanian provinces. The date of our hoard corresponds to the time when the number of Swedish coins in the Scanian provinces is increasing.It happened after the year 1354, a period with political unstability. Eric, the young son of Magnus, seized power in this part of the country but died after some few years, and from 1360 the Scanian provinces were no more part of Sweden. Apparently at this time the activity at the mint of Lund was decreasing and consequently in the Scanian provinces the need for Swedish coins was growing.

Abstract:

In Sweden, two major inventory and publication projects of coin finds from Sweden began in the 1970s: Corpus nummorum saeculorum (CNS), dealing with detailed information about Viking Age coin finds, and Sveriges Mynthistoria Landskapsinventeringen (SML), with the purpose of publishing coin finds from all time periods and from a more general perspective.  The paper addresses two main issues. Firstly, since the launch of the projects the theoretical perspectives have somewhat altered the questions that researchers and museums ask of collections. What role do the old inventory and catalogue projects play today and what lies in store for them in the future? Secondly, a new volume in the series SML was published in spring 2015, dealing with the northeastern part of the province of Skåne in Sweden. What can be learned about coin circulation in the period c. 1600-1800 from a total inventory of coin finds in a region?

Source:

Nationalmuseets Arbejdsmark (2014) p. 227-257

Abstract:

283 coins have been found at the important medieval castle Lilleborg in the forest of Almindingen on Bornholm. It has traditionally been assumed that the castle was built by the monarchy in the middle of the twelfth century and wholly or partly destroyed in 1259. The coin finds have always been central to the interpretation and dating of the establishment of the castle, but new studies of the dating and contexts of the Lilleborg coins compared with coin finds from other find-spots on Bornholm show that the former interpretations of this central complex must be corrected. The coin finds from the castle have hitherto been interpreted in the light of the finds from the rest of the kingdom and no allowance has been made for the fact that on the whole no coins have been found in Bornholm minted in the period c. 1074-1140. This opens up the possibility of an older dating of  the castle. Similarly it is clear that a very large number of the coins from Lilleborg were minted in the two decades after 1259. The castle must in other words have been intensively used at the time when written sources suggest that it was destroyed. On the other hand the coins show unequivocally that the castle was abandoned in the 1270s, when the spread of the coins in fact intensified greatly in the rest of Bornholm.

Maglebyskatten : en møntskat fra Grevens Fejde på Møn ca. 1535 / af Michael Märcher

Nationalmuseets Arbejdsmark 2015 (2015) p. 168-183

Abstract:

In 2012 a hoard consisting of 680 coins was found with a metal detector in a field on the island of Møn. The hoard was presumably buried in 1535 during the Danish Civil War of 1534-36. The coins are well preserved and the site was excavated, but no local features were found that can be directly associated with the hoard. In terms of composition of value and chronology, the hoard has no Danish parallels. It consists almost exclusively of domestic coin types, probably representing both a sample of the local coin circulation (primarily hvid and søsling) and a kind of savings (primarily 1 and 8 skilling coins, fig. 1). The research potential of the hoard is very great, and as an example of this the article discusses the hoard’s nine Swedish coins. They belong to a rare group of coins of which the hoard contains 50% of the known examples and they help to identify the nominal values of the rare type.

Monnaies normandes dans les régions baltiques à l'époque viking / Jens Christian Moesgaard

Revue Numismatique 161 (2005) p. 123-144, pls. 11-12

Abstract:

Based on a check list of finds, the exportation of Norman ducal coins is analysed. The first wave of the 10th century went to Viking lands in Scandinavia and the British Isles. From the mid-1 lth century on, the flow is directed towards Italy and the Near East where Normans were active as mercenaries, conquerors and pilgrims. The trans-Channel trade is pursued. Around thirty die-identical coins found at various places in Scandinavia and the Baltic area may be an imitative issue.

Aarbøger for Nordisk Oldkyndighed og Historie (2007) p. 247-255

Abstract:

After 1784, The Royal Cabinet of Coins and Medals was situated at the castle of Rosenborg, just outside central Copenhagen, and from 1799/1801 it gained its first keeper, Christian Ramus (1765-1832). The general director of the Cabinet was the very influential marshal of the Royal Court, A.W. Hauch (1755/1838). The Cabinet was under the administrative oversight of the Royal Board of Finances (the ‘Rentekammer’), and this led to the establishment of a Register of Finds in 1807. The register covered the period from 1801. A total of 25 finds and hoards from both Denmark and Norway as well as the duchies of Schleswig and Holstein entered the Cabinet during Ramus’s tenure. Ramus left some of them, however, to be dealt with by C.J. Thomsen (1788/1865), his successor within the medieval field (list 1).  We know that two more hoards, one from Norway (deposited c.1130/50), and one with Kufic coins from Falster, were known to Ramus. This was also the case with a find of the Burgundian Heraclius medal from c. 1400, which at the time was believed to be contemporary with the reign of the Byzantine emperor, and which was demonstrated to the King personally (list 2). These three finds were never entered in the Register of Finds, but more than fifty types from the Norwegian hoard were included in the planned corpus of medieval Danish and Norwegian coins (Ramus and Devegge 1832/67, plate xxxviii; Galster 1965), while the Kufic coins were published in Copenhagen in a separate publication by a young oriental scholar (Lindberg 1830; Haupt 2008). This was because the Register of Finds had after all only been instituted by Ramus to demonstrate which coins entered the Cabinet’s collection. It was left to Ramus’ successors, especially C.J. Thomsen, to demonstrate the scientific possibilities which are inherent in such a register of finds.

Summary:

The 1839 Kuolajiirvi hoard, dating from the beginning of the 12th century. included both coins and silver ornaments together with a balance and a set of weights. The composition of the coin material can be seen to reflect imports from Karelia and Russia as well as from Scandinavia.
