In Norse mythology, Freya is the goddess of love, beauty, fertility, battle, and even death. Considered a symbol of sensuality and the wile, untamed forces of nature, she is the leading goddess in the all-new Norse Goddesses collection of high-relief, antique silver coins from the Perth Mint.

The Perth Mint is increasing its foray into the production of silver coins with a rimless design, and using most of these blanks for the striking of high-relief coins. The rimless design gives the coin the appearance of ancient coinage, which did not feature the highly refined, reeded edges found on most modern bullion and proof coins.
In the all-new Norse Goddesses series from Perth Mint, investors and collectors buying silver will find a beautiful antique finish on all of these high-relief 2 oz coins. High-relief coinage features designs that spring to life courtesy of a high-pressure striking process, and the antique finish conveys a sense of ancient appeal to these coins.
On the obverse of all 2017 Freya Silver Coins you’ll find the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is captured in this particular design by Ian Rank-Broadley, and this 1998 depiction is the fourth-generation image of Her Majesty to appear on British and commonwealth coinage.
The reverse of all 2017 2 oz Tuvalu Norse Goddesses Freya Silver Coins includes the image of the goddess of love and beauty herself. In the design, Freya is featured holding her battle sword in her left hand, while her faithful golden-bristled boar “Hildisvini” is at her right side and a cat is perched upon her right shoulder.
All Silver Freya High Relief Antique Coins ship inside of a square, wooden display box that includes an illustrated graphic shipper case with imagery of Freya. On the top of the wooden box you’ll find the phrase “Norse Goddesses” emblazoned on the wood. Each coin comes with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
Opened in 1899, Perth Mint was originally part of the Royal Mint system on the continent along with the Sydney Mint and Melbourne Mint. Following the closure of both, Perth Mint was left as the oldest operating mint in the country.
