All of the coins in the Norse Gods Series are issued on 2 oz rimless blanks with an antique polish that creates matte visuals and the physical appearance of an ancient coin. The coins are high-relief specimens that have been struck several times by the Perth Mint under high pressure. This type of coining process results in a deeper field with greater visual depth to the design elements.
Thor is the second release of the three-coin Norse Gods Series. His father, Odin, was the first release of the series, and the mischievous God of Fire, Loki, was depicted in the final issue of the collection. Thor may be the best-known god from Norse mythology, thanks in no small part to his presence in Marvel Comics and the many Marvel feature films to hit the big screen over the last decade.
Queen Elizabeth II is depicted on the obverse of the 2016 2 oz Tuvalu Norse Gods Thor Silver High Relief Coins. This right-profile bust of the Queen was created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley for use on British coins and was popularly used throughout a number of Commonwealth nations.
Thor is shown on the reverse of 2016 2 oz Tuvalu Norse Gods Thor Silver High Relief Coins. In this design, Thor is shown wielding his powerful hammer while reaching out to grip the fang of the massive serpent known as Jormungand.
