The rich heritage of ancient Egypt has survived the centuries in form of precious artefacts.
This heritage is now savoured with a spectacular coin issue: “Icons of Heritage – Egypt”.
This 2 oz. 999 pure silver coin shows a pharaoh standing opposite the god Re-Harachte underneath some precisely minted hieroglyphics.
Re-Harachte is an affiliation of the divinities Re and Horus, this is why he is presented as a man with the head of the horus falcon and a solar disc above.
Instead of the solar disc, this coin bears a beautifully shimmering black onyx cabochon.
The 24K gold plating emphasises the detailed coin design, whereas the antique finish brings a tree-dimensional depth.
