Thor makes a thunderous debut on this action-packed coin! Order today!

Norse mythology has influenced the way we tell stories, and given rise to some everyday words. Its tales of gods and giants represented tradition to the Vikings of Vinland, and folklore to Scandinavian settlers in Canada. Now, we’re combining history and myth in a limited series dedicated to the Norse gods, and it begins with the hammer-wielding thunder god: Thor.

In the time of Canada’s Viking Age (c. 1000), quick-tempered Thor was one of the most admired figures of Norse faith and lore, and it is from him that we get the word “Thursday” (Thor’s Day). His strength and fearlessness are evident on your coin, where the apocalyptic battle scene is enhanced with selective gold plating.

A fun gift for someone who enjoys Thor and the Norse gods! Order today!

Design:

Designed by Alexandra Lefort, your coin depicts the battle between Thor and Jörmungandr at Ragnarök, an end-of-days event in Norse mythology. Clad in the finest clothing and armour of the Viking era, the Norse god of thunder stands with his hammer raised, ready to strike the coiled serpent. Selective gold plating highlights Thor’s hammer (Mjöllnir), iron gloves (Járngreipr) and belt (Megingjörð). A Norse art-inspired pattern lines the rim on the obverse and reverse. The gold-plated goat heads represent Tanngrisnir and Tanngnjóstr, who pull Thor’s chariot, while the gold-plated Mjöllnir is based on a 10th-century silver pendant. The obverse features the gold-plated effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Did you know…
  • The son of Odin and Jord, Thor is the ultimate Norse warrior. His courage and brawn make him the ideal defender of Asgard, one of the nine worlds and home to Aesir gods Odin, Frigg, and many more.
  • Thor has three key possessions: Mjöllnir, a giant-slaying hammer; Járngreip, his iron gloves; and Megingjörð, a belt that doubles his physical strength. All three are gold-plated on the coin’s reverse.
  • Thor represents strength, but he is also the god of agriculture and fertility. 
  • His arch-enemy is Jörmungandr, a giant sea serpent that wraps around Midgard (Earth). The middle child of Loki and Angrboða, Jörmungandr battles Thor during Ragnarök; the Norse thunder god kills Jörmungandr, but ultimately falls victim to the serpent’s venom after walking nine paces.

Packaging:

Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded clamshell with a black beauty box.
