Unearthed recently comes this ancient coin of the Vikings and Norse legends in the form of this Odin Viking Norse God Ancient Coin. Offered exclusively at Gifts Of Gods. This coin is not seen or offered anywhere else in the market. The most powerful of the Viking pantheon, Odin is the personification of wisdom, healing, death, royalty, the gallows, knowledge, battle, sorcery, poetry, frenzy, and the runic alphabet. He is the husband to the goddess Frigg.
In the ancient Old Norse texts, the female beings and forms connected to the battlefield—the valkyries—are known associates with the god and Odin overlooks and maintains control of Valhalla, where he receives the souls of one half of those who perish in battle, the einherjar. The other half are selected by the goddess Freyja for the location of her afterlife named, Fólkvangr. Odin consults with the disembodied, herb-embalmed head of the all knowing creature Mímir for advice, and during the foretold events of Ragnarök, Odin is told to lead the einherjar long into battle before being eaten by the monstrous wolf Fenrir. In later folklore, Odin appears as a leader of the Wild Hunt, a ghostly procession of the dead through the winter sky. He is associated with charms and other forms of magic, particularly in Old English and Old Norse texts.
With this unearthing of this coin relic of the past we see how the forces of Valhalla worked on their godlike anvils creating their magical coins like this one with the appearance of Odin riding his flying, powerful eight-legged steed Sleipnir across the sky and into the dark underworld. This is a god coin like no other with rich gold and silver antique plating, 1.75″ in diameter and 4mm in thickness.
Be a part of the history and legend of the Vikings!
I am the unknown Will,
The Anger that threatens glory and ruin:
Lord of Storms am I,
in heaven high and caverns deep.
I am the Father of the War,
Odin for you, Wotan for him,
Wayfarer, Wanderer, beggar, king,
numen, genius, strength and ring.
