The second coin in this stunning antiqued series features Frigg, the goddess of love, marriage, destiny, the sky and weaving.
She is said to have weaved the clouds to control the weather, and the threads of fate to determine the destiny of men and gods alike.
Frigg is also depicted as a goddess of fertility, household management, motherhood and domestic arts. She is considered the protector of birthing women and was called upon by those who were dying to help them transition to the after-life.
Each coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 2oz of 99.99% pure silver and issued as legal tender under the authority of the Government of Tuvalu.
The Perth Mint will release no more than 2,000 of the 2017 Norse Goddesses – Frigg 2oz Silver Antiqued High Relief Coin.
The reverse of the coin depicts Frigg sitting on Odin’s high seat cradling a newborn baby in one arm and holding a rose quartz pendant in the other. Also featured is a falcon, white candles and woven threads.
The coin is housed in a prestigious square wooden display case with stunning engraved detail on its lid, and packaged in a themed shipper. The coin is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
To capture the depth and detail of the design, the coin is struck in high relief to a rimless format, and has been individually ‘antiqued’ to give it a unique finish conveying the surface abrasions of an ancient artefact. As a result of this treatment, the appearance of each coin may vary.
