A coin struck at Sigtuna c. 1030 with Cnut as issuer has been seen as proof that Cnut the Great ruled in Sweden (Sigtuna) for a short period following the battle of Helgeå. However, based on other contemporary coins it can be shown that the legend was merely partly copied from an English prototype. Thus, it does not show that Cnut ruled at Sigtuna.
