Perth Mint Norse God coins debuted with the release of an Odin coin, honoring the Father of the Gods. The second release in the three-coin series featured the popular image of Thor, the God of Thunder and son of Odin. In the final release, the most mischievous of the gods completes the series as Loki debuts in the series.
Loki is without question the most devilish of the Norse gods. Thor and Loki often came into confrontation with one another as Loki stoked the flames of tension and threatened man and god alike.
Each of the 2016 2 oz Silver Tuvalu Norse God Series Loki coins in this Silver.com listing are high-relief proofs. Each is on a rimless blank that completes the eye-catching appeal of the coins. Additionally, the antique finish adds warmth and subtle detail to the overall design of these coins.
The reverse of each coin has the image of Loki. He is depicted with a haunting image on his face, seated with his hand stroking the head of a wolf laying at his feet. Engravings on this face of the coin include only the name of the god, “Loki.”
On the obverse of the 2016 2 oz Silver Tuvalu Norse God Series Loki coins you’ll find the image of Queen Elizabeth II. Created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley as the fourth-generation image of Her Majesty, the right-profile portrait is surrounded by engravings of “Queen Elizabeth II,” “2016 Tuvalu 2 Dollars,” and “2 oz 999 Silver.”
Perth Mint was one of the three original minting facilities in Australia. Founded in 1899 as the third and final Royal Mint facility, the Perth Mint is the only one still open today and is the nation’s oldest operating facility. Though not associated with the federal government, Perth coins are legal tender under the Currency Act of 1965.
