Vegvísir Norse Compass Necklace
"...if this sign is carried, one will never lose one's way in storms or bad weather, even when the way is not known."—Huld Manuscript.
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. 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 coin is struck with an incuse design, in which the letters are lowered rather than raised, so the lettering will stay dark even if the coin is carried daily.
