Each form of mythology found in cultures around the world is different, but there are shocking similarities that also exist. For example, many different forms of mythology offer a contrast between deities living in different realms. Often, different gods and goddesses are assigned to watch over various realms in the mortal and immortal world based on the virtues believed to be present, or lacking, in that figure. In Norse mythology, Hel is the Goddess of Death and rules Helheim. Now, 1 oz Norse God Series Hel Silver Rounds with a gold-plated finish are available to you for purchase online from JM Bullion.

There is nothing good that can come from ones association with Hel in Norse mythology. She rules over Helheim, the realm of the dead that she was cast down into by Odin. Suspicious of Hel and her siblings, Odin summoned all three to the halls of Asgard before casting them about to different corners of the world.
From her hall at Eljudner, Hel lives in a great mansion with high walls and a terrifying, howling hound guarding the gates that is known as Garm. Her table is famine, her knife is starvation, and her threshold is the stumbling block. To be told to go to hell was to be told to go and die. Hel received those into the underworld who had died of sickness and old age.
On the obverse of 1 oz Norse God Series Hel Silver Rounds is a depiction of the Goddess of Death as she is seated calmly on her throne. A mass of ghoulish figures fill the design field behind her figure as she holds onto a scepter. From time to time, when it suited her fancy, Hel would leave the gates of her kingdom open to the dead could wander the world and torment the living.
The reverse side of Norse God Series Hel Silver Rounds includes an image of a member of the Valkyrie. The Valkyrie were female warriors who rode on powerful steeds in the clouds above the battles of human civilizations. Known as the Chooser of the Slain, it was the Valkyrie that determined who would live and who would die.
