Description

According to Scandinavian tales, the Kraken lives on the coasts of Norway and Greenland and terrorizes local sailors. Krakens, or cephalopods like them, are said to attack ships and kill travelers, and once they have had their stomach filled, they like to play with the bones of their victims.

 

The reverse side depicts a legendary sea terror – the mythical creature Kraken – ravaging a ship it has encountered at sea. The meticulous detail and the lush depths of the sea add to the drama of the coin.

 

The obverse of the coin is divided into four sections, which contain all the coins of the Mythical Creatures series: The Labyrinth of the Minotaur, The Island of the Sirens, The Harpys Nest, and The Sea Monster Kraken. These mythical creatures are often found in Greek mythology.

 

Do you wonder why HM Queen Elizabeth II or other symbols of Niue are depicted on the coin? Or maybe you want to know why do we mint dollars? Read more HERE.
