Asgard 1 oz Silver Round - Mythical Cities Series (.999 Pure) #2 - Mason Mint
second in a new series
These new silver rounds are struck from .999 fine silver, meaning they are 99.9% pure. Each round contains 1 troy ounce of actual silver weight (ASW).
The obverse design depicts Odin, the formidable deity in Norse and Germanic traditions. He is shown wearing his eye patch and a winged helmet, joined by his two ravens, looking every bit as intimidating as one would expect from a powerful god. The background includes a radiant sun and the cosmic tree at the center of the universe, Yggdrasil. Rim inscriptions include "YGGDRASIL" at the top and "ODIN" along the bottom.
Known in the mythology as Bifröst, the great bridge between the Earth and the realm of the gods is shown on the reverse design. The bridge itself is a burning rainbow and leads to Asgard, the dwelling place of the Norse gods. An ornate fortification is shown at the end of the winding bridge, surrounded by clouds and a forest. "ASGARD" is found at the bottom rim while "CROSSING BIFRÖST" is inscribed along the top rim.
Each of these rounds contains 1 troy ounce of pure silver by weight. Their purity, .999 fine, means each round's composition is 99.9% pure silver.
