We are thrilled to offer the second issue in the Niue Dragon series, and it’s every bit as beautiful and intricate as the first release. This is the fabled Jormungandr and it’s intricately captured in stunning detail on the high relief 2 ounce .999 pure silver coin.
Power, strength, violence and a strong link to the terrain the people that created them live in, dragons from Scandinavia, the British Isles and Northern Europe usually depict a look that exudes menace and malevolence.
This incredible design features the dragon Jormungandr intertwined with the famed world tree Yggdrasil and eating its own tail. There is literally no part of the reverse face that isn’t packed with ultra high relief detail.
The insert, made of Azurite, is coloured like a view of the Earth from space and is an integral part of the mythology.
To highlight the impressiveness of the Fafnir dragon, Germania Mint has created a special edition – Germania Beasts: Fafnir 2 oz Silver BU – the 2 oz coin of 999.9 silver with ultra double high relief – 4 mm on the Obverse and 2 mm on the Reverse. The image of the Fafnir dragon has been raised and covered with a new iridescent special effect – Chameleon – the coating that makes dragon’s skin shimmer in different colors depending on the incident light.
Limited quantity of 999 pieces, creates the remarkable opportunity to become the exclusive owner of precious coins. Also its upgraded look and elegant packaging make it an amazing gift for keen numismatist or for someone who is not an avid collector.
