SKU: NORSHEL Categories: ,

According to ancient Norse mythology, Hel is the goddess of the dead and the queen of the underworld. The gods predicted terrible forebodings about the destiny of Hel and her two siblings, Fenrir the wolf and Jormungand the serpent. As a result Hel was banished to the netherworld by Odin, the king of Asgard, out of fear of what she might become. In the netherworld she was responsible for the fate of all those who died from sickness and old age, and those souls who did not die in battle.

The reverse of the coin depicts Hel sitting cross-legged underneath the first World Tree with Nidhug wrapped around the base of the tree. Some of the tree roots depict faces of the lost souls she watches over.
