THIS IS THE ORIGINAL NORSE GOD SERIES 

Introducing the third coin in a new series:  HEL, Goddess of Death, silver proof, mirror finish, one troy ounce coin.  The reverse design is VALKYRIE, Chooser of the Slain.  HEL is Coin Number Three in the Norse God Coin Series.

This exquisite coin features the artwork of world-renowned artist and illustrator, Howard David Johnson. His realistic illustrations are forever captured in .999 fine silver.

Mintage has been limited to 2000 rim-numbered silver medallion coins.  These coins have been struck at America's oldest private mint, Osborne Coinage.  To add dimension and detail, three dimensional sculpts have been crafted by master sculptor Luigi Badia to forge this coin.

HEL, Goddess of Death, is portrayed on the obverse of the coin surrounded by the dead.  In Norse mythology, Hel's parents were the trickster god Loki and the giantess Angerboda with whom he had three children.  The gods of Asgard were aware that these children were dwelling in the land of the giants, and they feared the woe and misfortune the offspring could bring.  Odin sent for the children.  The first was the Fenrir Wolf, the second was the Midgard Serpent and the third was Hel.  Hel's looks were stern, grim and downtrodden.  One half of her blue, the other half the hue of flesh.  Odin cast Hel into the lowest of places, Helheim/ Niflheim, where she was given power over the nine worlds.  Hel became the Goddess of the Underworld where she was to house those who died of sickness or old age.  The name of her hall was Eljudner.  Her table - famine.  Her knife - starvation.  Her threshold - stumbling block.  Her care - sickbed.  Hel did nothing to make her guests happy.  To be told to go to hell meant to go and die.  Hel's great mansion had surrounding walls of strange height with huge gates.  Chained to those gates was Garm, her howling hound.  Once in a while, Hel left the gate open, and the dead roamed the world to the horror of the living.

 

VALKYRIE, Chooser of the Slain, is portrayed on the coin reverse.  The Valkyrie were Odin's band of warrior maidens that rode through the sky on horseback watching over battles.  When men fought each other on the battlefield for land or riches, Odin and the Valkyrie would decide who would live and who would die.  The Valkyrie had winged helmets, and as they stormed through the clouds on their steeds, their swords glinted like lightening in the sky.  It is said the Valkyrie would be seen by a man in battle and he would know to fight with reckless fury until he himself fell.  The Valkyrie would throw him across her saddle and ride into the sky to Asgard.  They would bring their chosen to the afterlife hall in Valhalla.  Valhalla was Odin's great hall in Asgard where his army of fallen heroes lived out their days in glory - feasting, drinking and fighting.

The Norse God Coin Series is presented by Julie Lindquist, Series Creator, in conjunction with the Anonymous Mint.
