A goddess of spring, fertility, and the dawn, the ancient Germanic divinity known as Ostara — or Eostre, in whose name the ancient Saxons celebrated spring-time feasts — has loomed large in German culture since folklorists and scholars began reconstructing her myths and traditions in the 19th century. Believed to have been the source of what eventually became the tradition we know as Easter, she is a living goddess once again in modern neopaganism. The Germania Mint pays her tribute with the second release in their Valkyries series, which imagines key female figures in Germanic history and myth as part of Odin’s famous company of celestial warrior maidens. The 2023 Germania Valkyries Ostara 1 oz Silver Round is now available from Provident Metals.

Highlights:

  • Comes in a plastic capsule with a Certificate of Authenticity!
  • Issued by the Germania Mint in 2023, the second release in the Valkyries series!
  • Limited mintage of just 999 pieces!
  • Contains 1 Troy oz of .999 pure silver, with color decorative touches and a black and gold finish.
  • Face value of 5 Marks.
  • Obverse side features Ostara, the goddess of spring.
  • Reverse side is a shield design featuring the Germania Mint’s double eagle.

The 2023 Germania Valkyries Ostara Silver Round features high-relief artwork bright gilding offset against a black finish. It is available to you in a secure plastic capsule along with a unique Certificate of Authenticity.

Obverse

The obverse side shows Ostara with her sacred animals, the deer and the hare, and an inscription of her name above. She wears a simple gown and a colored floral garland, with a sacred rune appearing at her neckline.

Reverse

The same rune is repeated on the reverse as part of an elaborate decorative border surrounding a design that evokes an ancient Germanic wooden shield, complete with a boss at its center. This is flanked by a gilded double eagle and deer and accompanied by the inscriptions “GERMANIA 2023,” “1 oz Ag 999.9,” and “5 MARK.”

History

The Valkyries series is the Germania Mint’s tribute to female figures of myth and legend who have helped to shape crucial aspects of German culture and tradition. It imagines these figures poetically as part of the heavenly host of warrior maidens who served Odin and tended to the souls of warriors slain in battle. Ostara, a goddess believed to have been associated with or kin to Freyja — who for her part was believed to command the Valkyries — is a natural choice for an entry in this remarkable coin series.
