Guardian of the divine order of Asgard and one of the most revered deities in the ancient Norse pantheon, Heimdall is a figure of myth who has captured generations of imaginations all over the world. He’s the subject of the latest commemorative coin in the Cook Islands’ Norse Gods series, the remarkable 2022 Cook Islands Norse God Heimdall 2 oz Silver Coin now available from Provident Metals.
A gorgeous antique-quality matte finish provides the background for the ultra high-relief portrait of Heimdall that makes this coin a standout collectors’ item, executed in loving detail and accentuated with precious gold plating. Provident Metals ships the 2022 Cook Islands Norse God Heimdall Silver Coin in luxury box packaging ready for display in your collection, fully insured and including a Certificate of Authenticity.
The reverse side is dominated by the coin’s showpiece feature, a gold-plated portrait of Heimdall arrayed in armor, carrying a sword and blowing on the mythical Gjallahorn whose call could be heard in every world of the ancient Norse cosmogony. It’s accompanied by a Norse runic inscription along with the inscriptions “Norse Gods” and “Heimdall.”
On the obverse side is a familiar profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, the image originally designed by Ian Rank-Broadley and since seen on many Commonwealth circulation coins. It’s accompanied above by the inscriptions “Elizabeth II,” “2022,” and “Cook Islands.” Below are the inscriptions “2 oz,” “1 Dollar,” and “Ag 999.”
The ancient myths of Heimdall as handed down to the authors of works like the Poetic and Prose Eddas depicted him as uniting the virtues of wisdom, strength, steadfast purpose, and reliability. Both a guardian and an advisor, he survey the rainbow bridge of the Bifrost from his watchtower of Himinbjorg, a vantage point from which he could see approaching threats to the divine home of Asgard from anywhere in the world. He was both a strong arm and a canny counselor to the gods and one of the primary enemies of their deadly foe, Loki.
