2019 $2 Golden Treasures of Ancient Egypt 2oz Silver Antiqued Coin

This stunning Egyptian themed coin features a dome insert containing 24-carat gold particles surrounded by representations of ancient hieroglyphics and symbols.

Gold, with its lustrous sheen that never tarnishes, was considered by ancient Egyptians to be the skin of their deities, particularly Ra the sun god. The precious metal was worn by royalty and priests whole used with abundance on monuments and in funerary art, most famously the death mask of Tuankhamun.

Hieroglyphics, meaning holy ('hiero') writings ('glyphics'), comprise pictures of living creatures, objects used in daily life and symbols.

Struck by The Perth Mint from 2oz of 99.9% pure silver the coin is issued as legal tender under the authority of the Government of Tuvalu.

The Perth Mint will release no more than 2,500 of the Golden Treasures of Ancient Egypt 2019 2oz Silver Antiqued coins.

The reverse of the coin features 24-carat gold particles encased in perspex, surrounded by representations of Egyptian hieroglyphics and symbols. The design also includes The Perth Mint's 'P' Mintmark.

Each coin's obverse features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II , monetary denomination and the date.

Each coin has been individually 'antiqued' to give it a unique finish conveying the surface abrasions of an ancient artefact. As a result of this treatment, the appearance of each coin will vary.

The coin is housed in a pyramid shaped display case, the top of which opens to reveal the coin. The surface of the pyramid is decorated by hieroglyphics and features a coloured winged scarab beetle design. The ancient Egyptians revered this insect as the divine manifestation of the early morning sun, Khepri, and believed the god, in the form if the beetle, rolled the disk of the rising sun over the eastern horizon at daybreak. Packaged within a textured box stamped with the Golden Treasure scarab design, the coin is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.
