    "...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, 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 pendant to help guide us through modern moments of hafvilla.

    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 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. The coin is double sided with the same design on both sides.

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

    I ordered this because I am a fisherman and love Norse mythology. The bronze has been oxidizing in the salt air very nicely and I will wear it for years to come.


    Bought this for my grandchild and he absolutely loved it! Very good quality!

    Unique 8 Year Wedding Anniversary Gift

    Bronze is the traditional 8 year wedding gift and I had no idea what to get my nerdy significant other. A quick Google later and I found this compass/coin and company. My partner absolutely loves it, wears it every day, and as a fan of Norse mythology, it ended up being the perfect perfect gift for him. Very happy!

    The title should speak for the rest of the review. It is a wonderful piece as is everything from SPM.
