Hel is the Norse goddesses of the underworld, or world of the dead. Interestingly, in Old Norse her name translates to “hidden,” and likely refers to the fact that the underworld itself and the dead who reside there are hidden (buried) beneath the ground. Hel is often depicted as being greedy, harsh, and cruel.
The reverse of all 2017 2 oz Silver Tuvalu Norse Goddesses Hel Coins features the uniquely designed image of Hel. She was assigned to be guardian of the underworld by Odin himself, and is referred to as the daughter of Loki.
On the obverse of all coins in this collection is the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty’s effigy has appeared on all British and commonwealth coinage since her ascension to the throne in 1952, and this fourth-generation depiction comes from Ian Rank-Broadley in 1998.
The Perth Mint is the oldest operating mint facility in Australia. Opened in 1899 as the third and final Royal Mint facility during British Colonial rule, the Perth Mint is the only location that remains open to this day, and is now controlled by the state government of Western Australia.
