In Norse mythology, Skaði is a jötunn and goddess of archery, skiing, winter, and mountains. She is also known for challenging the gods of Asgard after the killing of her father, Thiazi. Skaði took up arms and armor and demanded compensation from the gods.

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."

Coin artwork by Peggy Maringer and engraving by Woody Maringer. The portrait of Skaði is based on Woody's partner, Betony.
