Description of obverse and reverse The obverse of the coin features the profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty’s effigy is included along with inscriptions of her name, issuer, year of issue, face value, the coin’s weight and alloy. The reverse features the image of Odin as he sits upon his throne wielding a spear in his hand. The images of his companions – two ravens and two wolves – are also depicted on the reverse. The name “ODIN” is engraved on the right.
A brief annotation Odin, who is sometimes cited as the second mythological king of Sweden, is somewhat analagous to Zeus as the godhead or Allfather in the Norse pantheon. Odin is accompanied by several animal companions. He rides Sleipnir, an eight-legged horse, and is often flanked by a pair of ravens, Hugin and Munin ("Thought" and "Memory"). He gives any food in Valhalla to his two wolves, Geri and Freki, because Odin subsists only off of mead or wine. He is also equipped with enchanted items: his spear, gungnir, always hits its target, and he carries a gold ring that produces eight more gold rings every ninth day.

Отличный дизайн, искусственное старение монеты, плюс сюжет на тему скандинавской мифологии - как результат моя хотелка жаждет эту монету в коллекцию. Жаль не по карману.
