Thor is arguably the best-known deity from Norse mythology. Though his stature was not higher than that of his father, Odin, his adaptation in Marvel Comics in the 1960s made him a cult icon among fans of graphic novels. Recent feature film adaptations of countless Marvel Comics have brought Thor to a new generation of people around the globe.
The obverse side of 2016 2 oz Silver Tuvalu Norse Gods Thor High Relief Coins features a bust of Queen Elizabeth II. Captured in right-profile relief in a 1998 design from Ian Rank-Broadley, the image shows the Queen wearing the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara. This is said to be the Queen’s favorite piece of jewelry and features in countless portraits of Her Majesty on British and Commonwealth denominations.
On the reverse of 2016 2 oz Silver Norse Gods Thor Coins is the God Thunder himself. Thor is shown with his powerful hammer in hand as he grasps the fang of the serpent Jormungand, a servant of Loki. Thor is the son of Odin, King of Asgard, and leader of the gods in Norse mythology. His mother, Fyorgyn, is also a Norse goddess, as is his wife Sif.
