This exciting new three-coin series celebrates some of the most well-known gods featured in ancient Norse mythology. Each coin is struck in high relief to a rimless format and features an antique finish.
The first coin features Odin, the king of Asgard. He is known as the king of the gods as well as the god of war and death, a sky god, and the god of wisdom and poetry.
This almighty god is frequently accompanied by his eight-legged horse called Sleipnir, given to him by Loki, his famous spear called Gungnir, his precious arm ring called Draupnir, two wolves called Geri and Freki, and two ravens called Hugin and Munin, who he sends around the world each day to gather news and information. Odin has a long beard and only one eye, because he sacrificed one to drink from the fountain of wisdom.
According to ancient Norse mythology, Odin was the king of Asgard. He had a tendency to disguise himself and is often depicted wearing a mask, a long hat, and a green coat. He is known as the king of the gods as well as the god of war and death, a sky god, and the god of wisdom and poetry.
