Shire Post Mint | Dual Stave Helm of Awe/Vegvisir | Viking Worry Coin Iron

Icelandic Staves are magical sigils purported to have supernatural powers with various effects. This 80 ton dual pressed iron worry coin from Shire Post Mint has two: the Vegvisir Wayfinder on the smooth side and the Helm of Awe on the hammer textured side. 

Viking Lore from Shire Post Mint:

Helm of Awe: Ægishjálmur in Icelandic is also known as the Warrior's Stave or Helm and The Helm of Awe or Helm of Terror. This sigil was though to induce fear in one's enemies, protect the warrior and prevail in battle. A central circular object is surrounded by 8 Algiz, or “Z-Runes”, like a protective screen of spears. 

Vegvisir: Also known as the Norse compass this stave is believed to protect the wearer from becoming lost in bad weather. Vikings used the word "hafvilla" or "bewildered" meaning to have no sense of direction or be lost at sea. Let this sigil be a guide through the hafvilla and uncertainty of the modern world.

Encircling the Vegvísir is the runic transliteration of the Icelandic phrase, "Ég stoppar ekki Þegar Þreyttur, ég stoppar Þegar ég er búinn", which translates to, "I do not stop when tired, I stop when done."


Minting process

Treated to look as if it has been handled and circulated, this process is done by hand, and it is both an art and a science, coloring and patinas will vary. No two are exactly the same. 

Coins are struck one at a time in the USA using antique machinery and traditional coining techniques. A colorful description is included with history and facts about the coin.
