Nidhoggr 5 oz Silver Proof Round

According to Norse mythology, Níðhöggr is a dragon who gnaws at the roots of the world tree, Yggdrasil. The obverse features the fearsome beast, dwelling in a cavernous abyss amidst the oversized roots of Yggdrasil. Níðhöggr looks ready to battle, bearing teeth and crouched to strike.

The reverse is shared by all 5 designs in the series and features Yggdrasil, the World Tree. The enormous ash tree is an important symbol in Norse mythology. Yggdrasil holds the Nine Worlds and aids in Odin’s transportation from one land to the next. Wildlife is drawn to Yggdrasil; a stag stands alongside the tree, nibbling at the branches. A serpent slithers at the roots, while a curious raven sits perched upon a limb. “1 OZ .999 FINE SILVER” is inscribed along the bottom border of the round, indicating the purity of this striking bullion.

Each round is edge numbered and ships in an airtight capsule, placed inside a velour lined coin box for protection.

Add magic and beauty to your silver bullion portfolio with the first release in the Nordic Creatures series- Níðhöggr. Order online, or call 800-313-3315.

Nidhoggr 1 oz Silver Antique Round

A beautiful, yet frightful, obverse features Níðhöggr, the “malice striker” of Norse mythos. This dragon plagues the Yggdrasil, the World Tree. Níðhöggr resides in the roots of the tree, continually causing damage to the home of the Nine Worlds. Scales and spikes cover the creature, creating quite the menacing appearance.

The legendary Yggdrasil is featured on the reverse, growing from the Well of Urd. The wealth of legends surrounding the great ash tree make it the perfect theme to feature on the commonly shared reverse for the Norse Creatures series. The alphabet of runes was said to have been carved on the trunk of Yggdrasil for Odin to find and deliver to the inhabitants of the Nine Worlds. According to the mythos, the World Tree is continually experiencing trauma. Níðhöggr attacks the roots, while 4 stags nibble the branches and mold rots the trunk. The reverse captures a stag, along with a serpent and a raven, drawn to the tree.

Each round is edge numbered and ships in an air tite capsule, placed inside a velour lined coin box for protection.

Mintage is limited to 2,000, so do not delay! Add the first release in the Norse Creatures series, Níðhöggr, to your silver bullion collection today. Order online, or call 800-313-3315.
