Fafnir was wise and powerful and it’s the ancestor of today’s dragon image. The name of the dragon came to most European languages from Latin, which uses the word draco, derived from the Greek drakan – sharp-eyed. This lets us to believe the dragons were not only sinister but the very intelligent beasts.The mythology and legends are full of stories about dragons that are used to understand the world and teach important lessons. Fafnir is the dragon from Germanian mythology. He owned the great treasure of Andwari, which he fiercely defended. According to legends, consumption of his blood develops supernatural powers. Fafnir, as every dragon didn’t simply exist for his own sake but largely as a background for bold adventurers.
The Fafnir’s visualisation has been created in the way, where two parts of its body placed on obverse and reverse of one coin create an image of a dragon’s body arranged in the infinity sign shape. To see this effect, coin needs to be flipped or two coins with Fafnir need to be placed, obverse & reverse, one above the other.
