interesting facts:
Triquetra is a an ambiguous symbol found on Viking rune stones. This particular design of triquetra comes from a penny of King of Norway Harald Hardrada minted in Nidarnes (Trondheim) in the years 1047-1066. Harald Hardrada was the founder of the Norwegian monetary system. His policy of unification of currency caused a complete removal of foreign coins from Norway.
