In Norse mythology, Freya is a goddess associated with love, sex, beauty, fertility, gold, seior, war, and death. Freyja is the owner of the necklace Brísingamen, rides a chariot pulled by two cats, keeps the boar Hildisvíni by her side, possesses a cloak of falcon feathers (Valshamr), and, by her husband Óor, is the mother of two daughters, Hnoss and Gersemi. Along with her brother Freyr, her father Njoror, and her mother, she is a member of the Vanir. Stemming from Old Norse Freyja, modern forms of the name include Freya, Freyia, and Freja.
The reverse of the coin depicts the Goddess Freya with her sword in her left hand and wearing her magical feathered cloak. Also featured in the design is a cat perched on her right shoulder, her golden bristled boar “Hildisvini”, a shield, and a battlefield in the background. On the top-left, the inscription: “FREYA” – the name of the coin. The obverse of the coin portrays the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the inscriptions: “QUEEN ELIZABETH II” – the name of the Queen, “2 DOLLARS” – the face value, “TUVALU” – the issue country, “2017” – the year of issue and “2OZ 9999 SILVER” – the weight of the coin and the fineness of the Silver.
