This Superb 2 oz Silver coin portrays ancient mythology and history in the new release as the second issue of the Woman Warriors series . The two signature elements of this specific series – the gilded sword and wooden shield – return again, and should make an equally attractive embellishment to the antique finish if the first coin is an indicator. The obverse remains the same as the first coin. As always, two ounces of silver, rimless, ultra-high-relief, antiqued and issued for Niue, which is a formula that works exceptionally well

Valkyries are attested in the Poetic Edda (a book of poems compiled in the 13th century from earlier traditional sources), the Prose Edda, the Heimskringla (both by Snorri Sturluson) and the Njáls saga (one of the Sagas of Icelanders), all written—or compiled—in the 13th century. They appear throughout the poetry of skalds, in a 14th-century charm, and in various runic inscriptions.
Archaeological excavations throughout Scandinavia have uncovered amulets theorized as depicting valkyries. In modern culture, valkyries have been the subject of works of art, musical works, comic books, video games and poetry
