    Antique Norse God Rounds – A JM Bullion Exclusive!

    JM Bullion has collaborated with the Anonymous Mint as the exclusive release partner on various collections, and that includes the exciting Antique Norse God Rounds. Less popular in popular culture and even education in North America over the past century, the gods of the Norse religion are as ancient and well-known in Europe as those of the Roman and Greek cultures. The Anonymous Mint and Osborne Precious Metals collaborated to produce a stunning collection of silver rounds for collectors.

    Gods in the Antique Norse Gods Series

    Like other cultural mythology, Norse mythology includes a number of major and minor gods. Included in the series, the Norse Gods collection features five gods in total with all of the major gods from the mythology represented. Designs in the collection include:

    • Odin: Known as the All-Father or the Father of the Gods, Odin is depicted sitting on his thrown with wolves at his feet and side while a bird rests at his right hand.
    • Thor: Son of Odin, Thor is the God of Thunder and wields the powerful hammer known as Mjolnir. The hammer can only be wielded by Thor and is featured prominently in the design as he rides in his chariot pulled by goats.
    • Hel: All mythologies have a god or goddess ruling over the underworld, and for the Norse mythology that figure is Hel. The goddess Hel is the daughter of Lok, Thor’s brother, and she receives the dead who pass on to the afterlife following sickness or old age. Her design depicts Hel sitting on her throne with countless lost souls visible in the background.
    • Freya: Following Hel’s deathly image, the vision of Freya was a welcome relief. The goddess of love, she presides over love, beauty, sexuality, and fertility. Freya leads the Valkyries, personal warriors of Odin, and receives half of the dead who die in battle. The design depicts a topless Freya on her own chariot pulled by cats.
    • Loki: The fifth and final design depicts a trickster god, Loki. Known as a God of Mischief, he is believed to be a blood brother to either Thor or Odin, depending on various interpretations of Norse mythology. His depiction in the series includes various symbols of the forms he takes.

    Highlights of the Antique Norse Gods Series

    While the obverse designs were different in each of the releases of the Antique Norse Gods Series, the reverse element was the same for all five issues. A member of the Valkyrie features on the reverse of the silver rounds in this series. The Valkyrie were chosen by Odin as a band of warriors who flew above the field during battles. It was their responsibility to decide who would live and who would die. Each one wore a winged helmet and rode their steeds through the skies with swords the glinted in the skies above.

    The Antique Norse Gods Series features 1 oz silver and 5 oz silver rounds. Each one has the Anonymous Mint’s proprietary antique polish which helps highlight the intricate details of the design and gives each round the appearance of ancient coinage. Additionally, the rounds are available with limited mintage figures of 2,000 1 oz rounds and 500 5 oz rounds.

    Finally, each of the Antique Norse Gods Series rounds come with an individual serial number etched onto the rim. The rounds are housed in protective capsules and come with numbered, signed Certificates of Authenticity. Lead coin designer Julie Lindquist developed the series, with each design die created by Italian Master Sculptor Luigi Badia.

    Mints behind the Antique Norse Gods Series

    Anonymous Mint, as mentioned above, led the design process for the collection under the supervision of Julie Lindquist. With the designs and concepts ready, Osborne Mint handled the physical production of the silver rounds in this collection. Osborne Precious Metals, as it is also known, traces its roots to 1835. The oldest operating mint in the nation, Osborne is situated near Cincinnati, Ohio.
