The second coin in the exciting Norse Goddesses series features Frigg. According to ancient Norse mythology, Frigg was 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. 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.
99.99% Pure Silver
The coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 2oz of 99.99% pure silver.
High Relief Design with Antique Finish
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 inscription FRIGG and The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark also feature in the design.
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.
