  1. Very nice design! Cant wait to see this one (like most) in hand!

    Didn’t even know this coin was being made and maybe lucked out by getting on the site tonight (9:36pm EST – Indiana, USA) and seeing it “new” and “just released”. I do have a few questions though if you dont mind helping me out.

    When was this coin released for sale initially on the Perth Mints website?

    Does buying the first one enable to get a ‘first chance’ to buy the 2nd and 3rd coin in the series? (Missed out on getting all the Gods and Goddness)

    What are the expected release dates for Thor and Loki? (So I can try to get them all from Perth)

    • Hi Mark

      The coin was released at 8.00am today (Australian Western Standard Time). Glad to hear you like it!

      Having purchased from The Perth Mint, you will hear from us in advance of the release of both subsequent coins in the series – which are currently scheduled to be issued within the next six months.

      Hope this helps,

      Kind regards

  2. Mark Rex –

    Glad as a fellow collector in USA you have discovered the high quality, beauty & wide selection of the Perth Mint Australia! If you are a Winchester, IN customer, you will be well-served to purchase the great coins offered here on the Perth Mint’s official website. The Odin coin design is superb I agree!
    Happy collecting!

  3. Amazing coin! Glad they limited to one per customer to give everyone a chance to get it. I expect this coin to be a collector piece. Even the wooden display box is fantastic. Great job.
