Each of the 2016 2 oz Silver Tuvalu Norse Gods Odin High Relief Coins in this listing earned a perfect certification from the NGC. Coins with the PF70 grade exhibit full, original mint luster and come with no detracting flaws on the design elements or background fields. Also featured with these coins is a First Release label from the NGC. This means the coins were received for grading within 30 days of the initial release from the Perth Mint.
All coins in this series are struck on 2 oz rimless blanks. The use of a rimless blank, combined with an antique polish on the coins, creates the visual appearance of an ancient coin. The use of high-relief coining techniques, striking the blank multiple times under intense pressure, creates greater depth to the background field and enhances the 3D visual depth of the design.
Queen Elizabeth II is depicted on the obverse of the 2016 2 oz Silver Tuvalu Norse Gods Odin High Relief Coins. This bust of Her Majesty was created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley in 1998 for the Royal Mint of England. It is one of the most popular and broadly used designs of her reign, featuring on British coins from 1998 to 2015, Australian coins from 1999 to 2018, and is still in use on Commonwealth denominations in places like Niue, Tuvalu, and the Cook Islands.
Odin is depicted astride his horse Sleipnir in the reverse design of the 2016 2 oz Silver Tuvalu Norse Gods Odin High Relief Coins. The design shows Odin flanked by his trusted animals, wolves and ravens.
