A Mythological Framework upheld during the Viking Age, Norse Mythology held great importance to 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 to Norse Mythology is the existence of Gods who belong to two separate clans, Aesir and Vanir. Reflecting on 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.
Recognised as Ymir’s descendants, the Norse God’s fashioned the Nordic Mythological Universe from the God’s blood, bones, flesh, teeth, hair, eyelashes, brains, and skull. Considered part of the Aesir Gods, Loki known as the god of fire and evil is a shape-shifting figure that can take up animalistic forms. A mischievous god, Loki is most known for causing the death of Balder, the son of Chief God Odin.
The savage nature of Loki is depicted in breathtaking detail on this 2oz Silver Legal Tender Coin, created with high relief detail representing an incredible visual effect. Loki himself is depicted in Gold Plating, allowing him to stand out on the reverse of this Coin.
