Each coin in the Norse Gods Series from Germanys BH Mayer Mint shares a number of commonalities. All coins contain 2 troy oz of silver and are struck as ultra-high-relief proofs. Coins such as these are struck multiple times under immense pressure to create design sets that leap off the surface of the coin.
In Norse mythology Heimdall was the keeper of heaven and guardian of Bifrost. A connection point between Asgard, the world of the gods, and Midgard, the human realm, Bifrost was a rainbow bridge that allowed for movement between the two realms.
On the obverse side of the 2016 2 oz Cook Islands Silver Norse Gods Heimdall Proof Coin is the image of Queen Elizabeth II, captured in right-profile relief in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley. Engravings on this face identify the nation of issue, Her Majestys name, the coins face value, and the year of issue.
The reverse of each Norse Gods coin features a design highlighting a specific diety. On this coin you can see Heimdall standing in the center of the design field, with the rainbow bridge of Bifrost behind him leading to Midgard from Asgard.
Each of these 2016 2 oz Cook Islands Silver Norse Gods Heimdall Proof Coins was struck by the BH Mayer Mint with the authorization of the government in the Cook Islands. BH Mayer Mint was founded in Germany in 1871, and continues its operations today under fifth-generation leadership.
