Vegvisir Wayfinder Coin

The Vegvísir is an Icelandic magical stave, which, according to the Huld manuscript, protects one from losing their way in bad weather. Shire Post Mint created this coin to help guide us through modern moments of being lost at sea.
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 in extra thick solid bronze 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. Coin artwork by Woody Maringer.
The surface is treated to look as if it has been handled and circulated. This process is done by hand, and it is both an art and a science, coloring and patinas will vary. No two are exactly the same.
