At Valaskjálf (Odins palace in Asgard), Odin sits on a throne known as Hliðskjálf. This high seat allows Odin to survey the world and see every act; he is also kept informed by the ravens Huginn and Muninn (both seen on the coins reverse). Odins many offspring include Thor, the god of thunder; Baldr, god of light, happiness and beauty; and Víðarr, the silent god who avenged Odins death and killed Fenrir during the events of Ragnarök.
