Freya, like Odin, enjoys a double representation of sorts in this Silver Norse God Series. As the Goddess of Love, she is depicted in her own right on the obverse. She is also represented by association on the reverse as she was the leader of the Valkyrie, a group of warrior maidens responsible for choosing the slain in human battles.
Those who died in battled were sent to one of two places after selection by the Valkyrie, the hall of Valhalla in Asgard to join Odin, or to Freya’s hall in Sessrymner. This beautiful, well-known goddess lives on in the modern era with a day of the week, Friday, named after her.
On the obverse of each 5 oz Antique Silver Norse God Series Freya Round is the image of the Goddess of Love as she rides on her chariot, drawn by two horses. When she rode into battle, Freya was said to lead the Valkyrie from her war pig, Hildisvini. Engravings feature her name “Freya” and the title “Goddess of Love.”
The reverse depicts a member of the Valkyrie riding her steed through the clouds. It is believed that the sound of the thundering hooves of a Valkyrie’s steed made thunder, while the glint of the steel from their swords produced lightning. Engravings on this face include “Valkyrie,” “Chooser of the Slain,” and “1 Ounce .999 Fine Silver.”
