Viking Dragon Shield Geocoin (Skidbladnir)
The design on the front is based upon a replica of a Viking shield. The 3D detailing really stands out.
The wood grain texture combined with metal edges and nails holding it all together are all quite impressive. On the back, a verse from the Hávamál, part of the Edda, which is a collection of Old Norse poems from the Viking age.
The Viking Dragon Shield Geocoin series is based upon the Viking mythology.
