Universal Goddess

The Czech Mint dedicated the silver coin to the second ancient goddess, the Viking Frigg.

Frigg is the wife of Odin and the supreme goddess of the Nordic pantheon
. She is beautiful, stout, and like her husband, infinitely wise. She sees the future, but usually keeps her secret to herself. Although she knows the destinies of all people and gods, she has failed to prevent the tragic death of her son Baldr, the kindest and most beloved of the gods. Her immense love for her son has made her a patron of marriage and fertility and a protector of home and family who can heal illnesses and injuries. Frigg is noble and just - she keeps the peace between men whose pride does not allow compromise, and as one of the few, she can change Odin's opinion. Last but not least, she acts as the goddess of spinning and weaving, and her symbols are the distaff and the spindle that she gave to humanity. These instruments symbolize not only the traditional women's craft, but also the destiny of a world intertwined with thousands of thin strands that Frigg knows well…

The reverse side of the coin, which was processed by the medal maker
Lenka Nebeská, DiS., presents a noble Frigg sitting on a throne. In his hand she holds the spindle of destiny, from which a small child unwinds the yarn. In the background stands a heron - an animal dedicated to the goddess - and the entire relief is surrounded by characteristic Viking ornaments, which can also be found on the obverse side of the coin. They are accompanied by motifs of Greek, Slavic, Indian and Egyptian origin - the obverse side is common to the whole cycle of divine coins. As the coins of the Czech Mint are licensed by a foreign issuer, the island of Niue, the obverse side still bears its necessary attributes - a nominal value of 10 DOLLARS (NZD), the name and portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. and year of issue 2021.

The great goddesses of the world are immortalized on large coins - each weighing
five troy ounces.
