This beautiful 2 oz silver coin is the first issue from “The Warriors” series. The given series is based upon the ancient Germanic warriors, the stories of which both European history and legend abound. “The Warriors” series depicts a sense of the fierce savagery of the ancient warriors, as well as their humanity as they lived as families in simple tribal communities. This coin is dedicated to Berserk.
Berserk is known for his mad courage and great strength, the invincible Odin’s protégé. His most terrifying attribute was a battle frenzy, in which he entered before the battle with the use of alcohol or hallucinogenic mushrooms. During this rampage the warrior drank human blood, screaming like a wild beast, bit his shield and his mouth was blowing foam. In the wild fury, he was convinced that he was resistant to steel and fire and that nothing could hurt him.
In battle Berserk attacked everything he encountered without distinguishing between a friend and an opponent, wreaking havoc upon the ranks of the enemy. He approached for battle without armor, wearing only a skin of a bear, a wolf or a wild boar. On the one hand, it emphasized his wild nature, and on the other hand, he helped his allies to keep their distance when he was in a fury.
The reverse features Berserk standing in front of the tribal community setting, battle-ready, wearing a bear’s head as his headdress and draped in the attached bearskin. His full beard is loosely braided, covering most of his massive, muscular, battle-scarred chest. And then there is the second pair of eyes integrated into the headdress, positioned just above his forehead. It is no wonder those unfortunate enough to encounter Berserk in battle believed him to be a wild beast!
His battle-ax is resting on his shoulder. Behind him displays somewhat of an unexpected peaceful view of what must be his tribal homestead concealed by the forest. Accenting the overall scene is the selective gold plating of the battle-ax and several large winged insects resting in Berserk’s beard.
This inaugural high-relief, antiqued release of Berserk far exceeds our high expectations. With an extremely limited mintage of only 499 for worldwide distribution, you will need to be quick!
