In many Nordic and Germanic traditions, Odin is the steward of the underworld, Valhalla, and is often accompanied by his two ravens and a pair of wolves. He is a central figure throughout Norse mythology. Even the day of the week Wednesday is his namesake in several languages, from Woden in Old English and Wodan in Old German.
Powerful, wise, and venerated, Odin is now featured on the first of the limited-mintage 12-coin Norse Gods series. Each legal tender coin is struck from .999 fine silver. Subsequent issues in the series will include other prominent deities from the Norse tradition, such as Thor and Loki.
