DESCRIPTION

Eir is a significant figure in Norse mythology because she saved the lives of many people. There is no unity in defining who is she – whether the Norse goddess or Valkyrie, but either way, all sources describe her as a figure of life, and patron of all those who work in medicine. She is familiar with all treatments and is skilful with herbs. Her colour is red, and her power is herbs.

That is why, in this coin, she is portrayed as a young woman of a slender build with reddish hair, smelling a red flower. The goddess is surrounded by healing herbs, home remedies, and colourful flowers, which are greatly reproduced with the help of digital printing.

Get amazed with healing beauty – Eir!
