Introducing the third coin in the Mythical Forest series, a tribute to the power and mysticism of trees. The linden tree is a symbol of femininity, life and vitality. In Germanic mythology, it was associated with Freyja, the goddess of love and fertility, Odin’s spouse. The linden is also a tree of lovers, under which they danced and celebrated, so it was planted in the central part of villages.
Planting a linden tree commemorated important events, such as a weddings or childbirths. Coffins were also made from its wood to ensure a peaceful sleep after death. Since the linden tree was associated with peace, it was also a good material for cradles. People took shelter under the tree during storms, believing it protected them from lightning. Touching the bark of the linden tree, on the other hand, was believed to draw diseases out of people and its health properties are widely known and valued even today.
