Stunning Viking Warrior Design by James Earle Fraser

Obverse: On the obverse, a Viking warrior stands with his shield in one hand and his sword in the other. Behind is a Viking long ship. The image was the work of James Earle Fraser. The anniversary dates, "1825" and "1925," flank the warrior, and "NORSE AMERICAN CENTENNIAL" is inscribed along the rim at the top.

Reverse: A long ship sails the high seas rowed by Vikings on the reverse, which was also designed by Fraser. Inscriptions on this face read, "AUTHORIZED BY CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," and "AD 1000." The date references Viking exploration of North America around that date.
