Norse Dual Stave in Iron, Vegvisir and Helm of Awe


When one stave isn't enough

This solid iron coin was struck with 80 tons of force between our hand-engraved steel Vegvisir and Helm of Awe dies! After that it's given a durable black oxide coating that won't readily rust and can be regularly handled.

Vegvisir Wayfinder

The Vegvísir, or Norse compass, is an Icelandic magical stave, which, according to the Huld manuscript, protects one from losing their way in bad weather.

Encircling the Vegvísir is the runic transliteration of the Icelandic phrase, “Ég stoppar ekki Þegar Þreyttur, ég stoppar Þegar ég er búinn”, which translates to, “I do not stop when tired, I stop when done.”

The Helm of Awe

Ægishjálmur, or Œgishjalmr` or in English, “The Helm of Awe”, is a Nordic magical Stave which is meant to imbue its carrier with protection, and inspire victory in battle. We like to imagine helping in the day to day challenges of every day life, and how the stave might remind its carrier how strong they truly are at heart.

Algiz, or “Z-Runes” Make up the foundations of the 8 main symbols-- forks emitting from a central point which are on the offensive and protecting the center.


The Norse Dual Stave is struck from solid iron, measures 3.3 cm in diameter, and weighs about 33 grams.

Designed and engraved by Woody Maringer. Learn more about our artists.

I’m in love

The quality is so great and they arrived really fast! It has really good weight to it too!

Quality is the word

Extremely pleased with the quality of the material and stamping process. The weight is perfect. Not too heavy but it definitely feels substantial in my hand and pocket. A great reminder that I do not finish when tired, but rather when I am done with what I need to do. Pairs great with my Memento Mori/Vivre coin.

Best damn EDC coin, period!

This coin is absolutely the most amazing coin! It looks freakin amazing, and the dual design is flawless. Especially for those who have Norse heritage, this coin is a must have.I’ve bought several coins from this shop and they are the best quality and customer service.


Amazing packaging; wax seals, bonus information, above and beyond. Solid Iron coin, couldn’t ask for more!
