Odin Silver Coin
2 oz Double-Sided Ultra High Relief
This coin has Double-Sided Ultra High Relief, meaning that both the obverse and reverse designs use the dramatic Ultra High Relief.

The Odin coin is the first release in the 4-coin Norse Gods series, and is legal tender with a $5 face value in the isle of Niue. Using designs created by famous American artists Heidi Wastweet, these coins were minted in Switzerland by the Helvetic Mint. A wooden display box and certificate of authenticity (COA) will be included with the coin to certify its limited worldwide mintage of only 750 coins!
More About The Odin Silver Coin
In many Nordic and Germanic traditions, Odin is the steward of the underworld, Valhalla, and is often accompanied by his two ravens and a pair of wolves. He is a central figure throughout Norse mythology. Even the day of the week “Wednesday” is his namesake in several languages, from Woden in Old English and Wodan in Old German.
Powerful, wise, and venerated, Odin is now featured on the first of the limited-mintage 4-coin Norse Gods series. Each legal tender coin is struck from .999 fine silver. Subsequent issues in the series will include other prominent deities from the Norse tradition, such as Thor and Loki.
