We’re pleased to introduce Hildegard, the first coin of five in the new Valkyries series from Germania Mint. Hildegard launches a collection of Germanic Goddesses – beautiful and warrior virgins, daughters of Odin. In mythology, the Valkyries carried souls of the bravest warriors fallen in battle to Valhalla.
On the reverse of the coin Hildegard stands strong as the protector of men. Behind the Valkyrie there is a stronghold, protected by a high wall of wooden palisade. In her hand Hildegard holds a Germanic spear and a shield with an image of the Fenrir Wolf.
The obverse presents a completely new design, combining both the signature Germania Mint double-headed eagle, as well as new Germanic runes and a howling wolf.
The animal motif, symbolizing strength and independence, is not accidental – in exchange for food, wolves defended the settlements and its inhabitants. The entire design of the reverse is composed as a shield, which also contains the issue year, metal alloy and the 10 mark denomination.
Designed by Mateusz Frackowiak and featuring both UV color and antique finish, the coin will be issued as a limited edition of just 999 pieces.
Valkyries Hildegard will be packed in a dedicated capsule with a magnifying lens and placed in a wooden package that also serves as a presenter. The originality of the product will be confirmed by the accompanying certificate of authenticity, which includes all product information.
