    "...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 keychain 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 or simply watch it spin. 

    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 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.

    Shire Post Mint coins are struck one at a time in West Fork, Arkansas, USA using solid metals, hand-engraved designs, antique machinery and traditional coining techniques. For antiqued coins, the coloring/patina process is done by hand, and it is both an art and a science so coins will vary slightly. Our unique packaging includes a description of each coin and translations if applicable.

    We collaborate with many artists to create our coins. Learn more about our artists.
