Description

The Norse Gods trilogy ends with Frigg, Odin's "beloved" and mother of Baldr, and the inspiration for the English word "Friday". A practitioner of Norse magic (sei_r), the Queen of the ®sir is the only other being who may sit upon Odin's high seat (Hli_skj‡lf) and look out at the cosmos. The goddess of family and fertility weaves the clouds and spins our fates. She knows the destiny of every being, but she will never reveal it. Frigg wears a coat of falcon feathers that allows her to take to the sky, a feature that is highlighted in this selectively gold-plated tribute.

The reverse image by Alexandra Lefort emphasizes Frigg's role as the Norse goddess of the sky. The Queen of ®sir holds a distaff in one hand and a spindle in the other, as she weaves the clouds that float towards the full moon. Selective gold plating highlights Frigg's belt and her feather shawl, which allows her to assume the shape of her falcon companion.. Also gold-plated are the falcon emblem of Frigg and the mistletoe that is associated with the death of her son Baldr. The obverse features the gold-plated effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
