The second design released in the Norse Gods series, Thor – The God of War is fabricated from a 1 oz .999 fine silver coin . The Howard David Johnson design creates a striking appearance for fans of Norse mythology.
The outer band features the mighty god, Thor, wielding his hammer, Mjolnir. The hammer is famous for its strength and its loyalty to its owner, Thor. Only he can utilize Mjolnir’s power. While Thor and Mjolnir appear in silver, lighting emanates from the top of the mighty hammer, creating turbulent and remarkable sky highlights.
The inner band highlights the notable Valkyrie- the “Chooser of the Slain,” (as is seen inscribed to the left of the steed). According to the legend, Valkyries rode through battle, watching the heroic warriors fight. Those who were killed could be chosen by a Valkyrie to ascend to Valhalla, a hall for warriors to feast and prepare for the ultimate battle of Ragnarok. This Valkyrie rides, wielding her sword and shield. “VALKYRIE” is noted above her, while “1 ounce .999 Fine Silver,” is displayed to her left.
This exclusive coin has a very limited mintage of 1000.
