Norse mythology as enjoyed a revival in interest in Western society in recent years with the release of numerous proof coins series. The BH Mayer Mint’s Silver Norse God program is a nine-coin series featuring reverse designs representing a different god or goddess. The program launched in 2015 with four coins and continues with five more in 2016.
Loki is known as the god of evil and had the power to transform himself into other beings. He was known to transform on a regular basis into creatures such as fish, horses, and birds. Each of these creatures was incorporated into the background design for the Loki proof coin.
