The Germania Mint 2023 Valkyries Ostara medals are part of a flurry of new releases from Germania. This is the second in the Valkyries series that started just last year. Germanic goddesses, daughters of Odin, who according to Germanic mythology supported the bravest warriors who fell in battle.
For 2023 they feature Ostara. Ostara is associated with spring and new life. On the obverse Ostara is depicted with both a hare and a deer, symbols of fertility. The reverse features not only Germania Mint's beautiful coat of arms with the bicephalous eagle, but also a stag. Pertinent information such as the year, weight, purity and denomination are also included in this shield like design.
This initial release will feature a 1 oz Silver BU with a limited mintage of 25,000 and the Valhall edition with multimetal plating and a mintage of just 999.
The 1 oz Silver BUs are presented in a lens cap that allows for viewing of all of the details. The Valhalla editions are in the same lens caps but with outer blister packaging. Both medals have certificates of authenticity. A 2 oz Ultra High Relief will launch at a much later date.
