Loki may have been the God of Mischief, but his position in the world remains questioned to this day. According to the source you view, Loki was known as potentially a blood brother to Odin, while others cite Loki as the brother of Thor and son of Odin. He is believed to have changed his allegiances to suit his needs, at times helping the gods while threatening mankind at other times.
The final release in the 1 oz Antique Silver Norse God Series, the Loki round captures the God of Mischief as he was often depicted, appearing handsome, graceful, and fair. Each round is a mirrored, proof product with an antique finish that provides warmth and subtle depth to the details of this round.
On the obverse of the 1 oz Antique Silver Norse God Series Loki Round you’ll find the image of Loki. Although he had many roles, he was also known to be a shape shifter and used this ability to hide from the other gods after he killed Balder, the God of Light. This image of Loki features him surrounded by some of the animals he would shape shift into, and bears the engravings “Loki” and “God of Mischief.”
The reverse of each round includes the image of a member of the Valkyrie. These warrior maidens rode their steeds in the skies overhead mankind’s battlefields. It is said if a man saw the Valkyrie while in battle, he would know to fight with reckless abandon until he fell on the field of battle, at which point he’d be thrown across her saddle and brought into Asgard, and Odin’s hall of Valhalla.
Anonymous Mint and Osborne Precious Metals combined to produce this round series. Julie Lindquist and Anonymous Mint developed the series, with Osborne Precious Metals striking the rounds for Anonymous.
