This is the Algiz Rune which is part of the low mintage Rune program from Germania Mint. Each 1 ounce Rune is ennobled with a magical color, which reveals itself only when illuminated with a furnished UV flashlight. A Certificate of Authenticity and minimalist packaging complete the Rune both as a collector’s item and as an ideal gift.
The Runic alphabet (Elder Futhark) is a script once used by Germanic peoples. According to beliefs, the god Odin sacrificed his life to receive knowledge of runic magic so he could share it with others. The alphabet, which consists of 24 characters called runes, was carved in various materials: wood, bone, metal, and most often in stone. Each rune has a specific sound and meaning.
The Algiz Rune is a powerful symbol of protection and defence against potential danger or harm. They can also signify the need to connect with one’s higher self or to seek guidance from a higher power, which would allow one to overcome challenges and achieve goals.
