This exceptional coin is the second release in the Vikings series, featuring Freydis Eiriksdottir.
Struck from 2oz of pure silver with selective gilding, the design features Freydis Eiriksdottir storming into battle. Limited to only 500 coins worldwide!
Freydis Eiriksdottir was a Norse woman said to be the daughter of Erik the Red, who is associated with the Norse exploration of North America and the discovery of Vinland with his son Leif Erikson. The only medieval and primary sources that mention Freydis are the two Vinland sagas: the Greenland saga and the Saga of Erik the Red. The two sagas offer differing accounts, though Freydis is portrayed in both as a masculine, strong-willed woman who would defy the odds of her society.
The high relief design features an antique finish with selective gold plating. The coin comes housed in a wooden case along with a Certificate of Authenticity.
