Design based on the 6th century AD gold bracteate found in 1774 at Vadstena, Sweden. The iconography displays imagery believed to be representative of Odin as well as a full inscription of the Elder Futhark runic alphabet.

Bracteates are believed to have imitated Roman coinage, paid as peace money to the Germanic tribes beyond the Roman northern borders or Limes of Germania Inferior (present-day Germany and the Netherlands).
