A Mythological Framework upheld during the Viking Age, Norse Mythology held great importance for those living in the Viking Society, with individuals said to have personal connections to individual gods, conducting daily customs and rituals as part of everyday life.
A central tenet of Norse Mythology was the existence of Gods who belonged to two separate clans, Aesir and Vanir. Examining the formation of the Nordic Mythological Universe, it was said that the first living being was Ymir, a Hermaphroditic giant created by drops of water. His subsequent death resulted from the actions of the idolised God Odin and his brothers.
Heimdall, a guardian of the realm of Gods, is recognised as one of the more mysterious Nordic Gods of Norse Mythology. Said to occupy the might of sea and earth, and a keen protector of the Nordic Realm, Heimdall holds a close link to Yggdrasil, the tree of life.
This gatekeeper of Asgard is most known for his final battle with the evil God Loki, in which both Gods die. Depicted with his trusty calling horn, Heimdall is brought to life in exquisite detail on this 2oz Silver $1 Coin in 24k Gold Plating.
This high relief, legal tender edition follows the huge success of our recent release centered on the feared Norse God, Loki.
