This coin continues the “Legendary Warriors” series, which pays tribute to the valiant warriors of past centuries and tells their story with a language of coin art. The coin depicts the Viking Axeman who holds an axe, looking threatening and wild with this weapon in his hands.

Vikings are often pictured clutching axes of different sizes. Axes were an important part of Viking’s life. Not just like weapons, but as tools, they simply couldn’t do without them in their daily lives. Axes were the most common weapons used during conflicts. One of the reasons why axes were a popular choice of weapon is due to their agility and compact size.

A great coin featuring selective gilding and digital printing that portrays a courageous Viking Axeman in battle!
