Germania Mint at Art in Coins

Introducing Ostara, the second coin in the Valkyries series from Germania Mint and now struck in ultra high relief with vibrant color and a deep antique finish. 2023 continues the Valkyries collection of Germanic goddesses, daughters of Odin, who according to mythology supported the bravest warriors who fell in battle. Ostara symbolizes spring awakening and bloom and equally freshness, light and joy.

On the reverse, Ostara, the goddess of the victory of life over death, is accompanied by a deer and a hare, symbols of fertility. According to beliefs, while walking in the snow, the Valkyrie found an injured bird and transformed it into a more cold-resistant animal – a rabbit. Ostara herself is clad in an airy white gown and floral garland. Her neckline is decorated with the Berkanan rune – responsible for vitality and regeneration, female fertility and beauty.

The obverse again presents the double-headed eagle, with the goddess’s preferred animal, a deer. The shield, which includes the year of issue, purity and denomination, features classic Germanic runes.

Designed by Mateusz Frackowiak and struck in brilliant uncirculated quality, the coin will be issued as a limited edition of just 999 pieces.

Valkyries Ostara will ship in a protective capsule along with a deluxe box and certificate of authenticity.
