1oz World of Dragons - The Norse Dragon Silver Bullion Coin
The fourth release in this exciting 6-design series celebrates the Norse Dragon, which is part dragon and part serpent. The Norse dragon (also called Nidhogg) was a terrifying beast.
In ancient cultures, stories about heroes and monsters were an important part of everyday life. They helped people explain objects in the sky, make sense of weather events, or answer life’s big questions. Born around the fire and evolved through word of mouth, tales of these creatures and their supernatural powers were told and retold millions of times from person to person, from trade port to trade port, and from generation to generation - manifesting into a hundred different versions around the world.
The story of the dragon is no different. Dragons have been one of the world’s most popular mythological creatures through the ages, and they continue to stir our imaginations to this day. Almost every culture on earth has its own ancient dragon myth.
