This is a pretty cool range of twelve coins, with an interesting focus. Each of these antique-finished half-ounce silver coins depicts an element of the Norse world, from actual historical figures, through cultural practices, to mystical beliefs and it’s a great mix of subjects. We particularly like the Longship, Yggdrasil, and Art of War designs, but none are weak.
You can see eight of them here, but missing are ‘A Viking Village’, ‘Trading Post Hedeby’, ‘Valhalla’, and ‘Leif Eriksson’, all of them decent. Rather than focus on a line-up of big icons, MDM have produced a really well balanced set, which is a pleasure to see. There’s also a 0.5 gram minigold (below), which looks okay, but it’s not a great render, so we’ll reserve judgement until we see an actual coin image. We like minigold coins here.
Each coin can come in a blisterpack, or you can pick up a folder with space for all twelve coins and the minigold. Apparently, you can also buy the whole lot as a set, but the attraction here is the affordability of them when bought individually. The market is forgetting the less well off collector too much these days, so this is nice to see.
