The Great Eagle is portrayed on the obverse of the coin.  On the highest bough of the World Tree sits a great Eagle.  The Eagle fans the air with his enormous wings bringing the winds to all the worlds.  With his keen eyesight and the help of a hawk, Vedfolner, which sits between his eyes, the Eagle keeps watch over the corners of the world.  The Eagle and the Dragon Nidhoggr are bitter enemies.  Ratatosk, a busybody squirrel, scampers up and down the length of the World Tree slinging insults between the Eagle and the Dragon keeping their hatred brewing.  While the Eagle guards Yggdrasil, Nidhoggr tries to destroy the World Tree.
< br> The World Tree, Yggdrasil, is portrayed on the reverse of the coin series.  According to Norse mythology, Yggdrasil connects the nine Norse worlds.  Yggdrasil is an immense ash tree whose branches reach far into the heavens.  Its three roots grow in three directions - under one root is Hel and Niflheim, under the second root the frost giants, and humankind under the third.  Beneath the root that reaches the frost giants is a well containing much knowledge and wisdom.  Many creatures live within The World Tree, and the great ash suffers more agony then men can know, a stag bites it above, at its side it rots, and the Dragon Níðhöggr gnaws it below.  The three Norns of fate care for the great ash.  It was at Yggdrasil that Odin founded the runic alphabet making it possible for men to communicate through written words.  Being the most holy of all places, the gods assemble there daily to decide what is just and unjust.  After their daily council, they would travel the rainbow bridge home to Asgard, land of the gods.
