The Vegvísir, or Norse compass, is an Icelandic magical stave, which, according to the Huld manuscript, protects one from losing their way in bad weather.The vikings used the word “hafvilla” or “bewildered” which means to have no sense of direction or be lost at sea. We created this coin to help guide us through modern moments of hafvilla. This wayfinder will help guide the holder through the rough journey of life. Use it to find the correct path to travel. 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 solid bronze coin is struck 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. Bronze coin is about 32 grams struck from solid bronze. This extra thick Vegvísir Wayfinder Coin is struck from solid bronze and measures 3.24 cm in diameter. Coin artwork by Woody Maringer.

A colorful description is included with history and facts about the coin.
