The Kraken is a legendary sea monster that was first rumored to exist along the coasts of Norway and Greenland, and reported by Viking warriors traversing the North Atlantic in the 13th century. Krakens were rumored to be of almost impossible size, with some insisting the beasts were a mile around with multiple arms that could engulf a ship of any size instantly.
On the obverse of the 1 oz Antique Kraken Silver Round you’ll find the image of the beast as it attacks a Viking longboat, while the helpless sailors to their best to fight off the creature. The design for this series came from Julie Lindquist, with each round featuring edge lettering that denotes its position in the striking order.
The reverse of each round has the logo of the Anonymous Mint. It depicts an owl in the traditional American bald eagle pose, with wings spread wide and the arrows of war clutched in its talons.
Anonymous Mint designs and produces its silver rounds in conjunction with the North American Mint, one of the larger private minting operations in the United States. Anonymous Mint products are known for low mintages and one-of-a-kind designs. These 1 oz Antique Kraken Silver Rounds feature numbered Certificates of Authenticity within the shipper box.
