There is a BIG difference between a coin and a medal. This is not your standard EDC coinage – this is EDC reminder coins on steroids! Every Norse Medal measures a whopping 2.7 inches (70mm) in diameter and with a thickness of 0.2 inches (5mm). The weight of the medal surprises many people when it exchanges hands.
Norse Medals Vol. II presents 4 metallic medals depicting iconic battlescenes from Ragnarok, the cataclysmic end of the cosmos in Norse mythology. Each medal featuring a unique and mortal duel between the Gods and Jotunn.
THE FREJ MEDAL – The runes read ‘FREJ BEKÆMPER SURT‘ in danish, meaning ‘Frejr fights Surtr‘. Here, Frejr is bravely facing the destructive fire giant Surtr carrying his flaming sword. (Frejr dies in battle and Surtr’s fire burns heaven and earth.)

Medal, pouch and box variants are all specified in your survey once the funding has ended on Kickstarter.

The project is designed with the danish way of spelling the names of the Gods and Jotunn. Ie. in Denmark we traditionally say ‘Fenris’ or ‘Fenrisulven’, not ‘Fenrir’. In texts and comments we may be using the english terms to ease communication, while the designs themselves are based on the danish way of pronouncing the Gods and Jötnar.
This project is developed and managed by Marianne Larsen in collaboration with team members Martin Helgren, Patrick Leis, Svend Normand and Nicolai Aaroe.
This collaborative team of devoted artists is collectively known as the Design Imperator team and has been working on several other succesful projects funded on Kickstarter, including our Saga Playing Cards.
