Click To Enlarge

Introducing the second coin in a new series:  THOR, God of Thunder, silver proof, mirror finish, one troy ounce coin.  The reverse design is VALKYRIE, Chooser of the Slain.  THOR is Coin Number Two 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.

THOR, God of Thunder, is portrayed on the obverse of the coin. In Norse mythology, Thor presides over thunder, lightening, wind, rain, fair weather and agricultural crops. Thor is the son of Odin and a beautiful giantess, Fjorgyn.  He is a large powerful man with a red beard and fierce eyes serving as protector of both gods and humans against the forces of evil.  Riding in a chariot pulled by goats, Tanngrisnir (Tooth-gap) and Tanngnjostr (Tooth-gnasher), Thor would wear a magical belt that would double his enormous strength and wield his hammer, Mjolnir, which he would hurl.  Mjolnir would hit its target and immediately return to Thor's hand.  The sound of thunder was created by Thor's chariot rolling across the sky while lightening flashed and bolted when Thor threw his hammer.  Thor rode across the sky crushing the skulls of frost giants and trolls with Mjolnir.

Second only to Odin, Thor was the most popular of the gods.  Hammer shaped amulets were worn by men to symbolize and worship Thor well into the era of the Christianization of Scandinavia.  To his honor, a day of the week has been named after him, Thor's Day, or Thursday.

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.
