The 2016 2 oz Cook Islands Silver Norse Gods Ultra High Relief Coin captures Loki in all of his glory, and is the sixth of nine coins to be released by BH Mayer Mint featuring legendary gods of war. Loki is a monstrously all-powerful magician, who similar to Odin has the capacity to sex and shape shift freely. Witty, devilish, and at times flagrantly malicious, Loki is known for trapping everyone in muddled issues, to which he generally supplies a devilish quick fix to his benefit. Stories tell of his many lovers, one of which he fathered three monsters with, despite being married to Sigyn, who was dutifully loyal to him even when he was chastised by the Gods.The capricious God fathered Hel, goddess of the grave, Jormungand, the enormous snake who kills Thor amid Ragnarok, and Fernir, the wolf who gnawed off one of the hands of Tyr and who slaughters Odin amid Ragnarok. Loki shows a complete absence of sympathy toward the prosperity of his kindred deities, an attribute he clearly passed down to his ferocious children.
It is no wonder he willingly betrayed Heimdall leading the giants to Asgard where they slayed the Gods. In many Norse stories, Loki is depicted as a conspiring wimp who looks after shallow joys and self-safeguarding. On the other hand, he is also regarded as being energetic, malignant, and accommodating, yet hes generally rude and rebellious. Contains 2 troy oz of.Sixth release in the Norse Gods series.
