The Vegvísir Guides the Way Through the Storm

  • Solid .999 Fine Silver, 1 Troy oz

  • 3.24 cm diameter 

"...if this sign is carried, one will never lose one's way in storms or bad weather, even when the way is not known."
—Huld Manuscript

The Vegvísir, or Norse compass translating to "wayseer", is an Icelandic magical stave, which, according to the Huld manuscript, protects one from losing their way in bad weather. The vikings used the word "hafvilla" or "bewildered" which means to have no sense of direction or be lost at sea. We created this coin to help guide us through modern moments of hafvilla.

This wayfinder will help guide the holder through the rough journey of life. Use it to find the correct path to travel. 

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 solid bronze or silver coin is struck with an incuse design, in which the letters are lowered rather than raised. This way the lettering will stay dark even if the coin is carried daily.

Nice EDC Reminder Coin

The coin was much thicker than I was expecting.
I think it is as thick, or thicker than an Eisenhower Dollar, but has the diameter closer to a half dollar.

The detail on the imprint is very nice.

Not much else to say, mostly posting this review so I can include some pictures.

[Note: the bronze version appears to be a little thicker than the Silver version.]

Definitely pure silver

Fast shipping. Symbols are clean and clear. Nice "antique" look without appearing damaged. Took to a jeweler to use XRF machine and can confirm it is pure silver. It is exactly how it is described on thier site. I definitely recommend this coin!

Thanks for your support! We take pride in our patinas :D

A hefty reminder

My vegvisir coin has ridden in my pocket ever since it was received. It’s a nice hefty reminder that I can make it home through any storm (physical or spiritual). To give it a little extra power-up, I left it outside on a paving stone during the Nov. 19, 2021 full-moon lunar eclipse. I thought it was fitting for a coin made of pure silver.

AMAZING. That coin must be FULL of power

Beautiful Coin

Proof-shiny is fine for some coins, but this coin has character. It isn't the first coin I've bought from Shire Post, and it certainly won't be the last.
