The 2017 2 oz Silver Tuvalu Norse Goddesses Frigg High Relief. Second release from Perth’s Norse Goddesses Series! Mintage limited to 2,000 coins only! Consists of Two Troy ounces of. 9999 fine silver in antique finish. The obverse includes Queen Elizabeth II’s effigy. The Norse goddess Frigg is on the reverse. The Perth Mint’s Norse Goddesses Series pulls out all the stops in terms of design and beauty. Each coin starts out as a rimless blank with an antique polish. The blanks are struck under high pressure to create the high-relief finish, which adds depth to the intricate details of the coin’s designs. An antique polish is added individually to each coin to give them an ancient appearance, and the rimless nature of the blanks reinforces that visual effect by mimicking the visual appearance of ancient coinage. In Norse mythology, Frigg filled many roles. Like their counterparts in Roman and Greek mythology, Norse gods and goddesses often had one primary attribute associated with them, as well as several minor characteristics. Frigg is known as the goddess of love and marriage, but also a controller of destiny as she possesses the power to weave the threads of fate. The obverse of the Norse Goddesses Series coins from Perth Mint feature Queen Elizabeth II’s effigy. Captured in right-profile relief by Ian Rank-Broadley, this fourth-generation image was designed in 1998 for British and commonwealth currency. On the reverse of the 2017 2 oz Silver Tuvalu Norse Goddesses Frigg High Relief Coin is the intricate detail of the Frigg design. It includes an image of Frigg as she sits in the high seat of Odin. She is depicted holding a newborn child in one arm with a falcon, white candles, and woven threads adorning the background. Perth Mint was founded in Australia in 1899 during British rule as the third and final Royal Mint facility.
