About This Item

Guldhornene Gold DK

The Golden Horns of Gallehus, DK were two horns made of gold, one shorter than the other, discovered in Gallehus, north of Tønder in South Jutland, Denmark. The longer horn of the two was found in 1639, and the second in 1734, 15-20 meters apart from the first discovery. The horns are believed to have dated to the fifth century and depict mythological figures of uncertain origin. The smaller of the two bore a Proto-Norse Elder Futhark inscription. The original horns were stolen and melted down. However, copies based on illustrations of the original horns were produced and are exhibited at the National Museum of Denmark, Copenhagen, Denmark and the Moesgaard Museum, near Aarhus, Denmark. Since then, copies of the horns have been stolen (and retrieved) twice. This version of the coin does have a gold edge and a gold horn.

Sorry for the late logging, I only discovered now I have this coin on me. My friend sent it to me like a month ago but it slipped into a folder of mine. Will place it somewhere soon.

Has been to the picturesque Lake Balaton. Really nice area. Now back to Budapest and then we'll fly to Bristol, UK but to Loughborough, UK. Hopefully it'll find its way home to Denmark.

Found it in LHDK Dunakeszi Airport. Will take it to somewhere soon, to one of the Megaevents in Europe and pass it to someone. If not I place it to a Hungarian cache western from here.
