Intended for those who are fascinated by the Ancient Egyptian culture and history, this coin exhibits a great deal of artistry in designing detailed coins.

The reverse of the coin features 24-carat gold particles encased in perspex, surrounded by representations of Egyptian hieroglyphics and symbols. The symbols include sacred images denoting protection, eternal life, and royalty such as the Eye of Horus, a pyramid, a vase, the goddess Isis, a falcon, an ankh hieroglyph representing life, a sarcophagus, and a scarab. Ancient Egyptians revered gold and considered it to be the skin of their deities, particularly the sun god, Ra. Worn by royalty and priests; the precious substance was often featured in funerary art, most famously the death mask of Tutankhamun who reigned from approximately 1336-1327 BCE. The reverse also shows the Perth Mint’s mintmark, along with the weight and quality of the metal.

The obverse of the coin displays Rank-Broadley’s effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, along with with the year of issue, 2019, and face value of the coin, 2 dollars. The issuing country of the coin, Tulav, is inscribed on the obverse.

This coin is struck in 99.99 pure silver with an antique finish. 

Adding to the beauty of its design, this 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 colored 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 of the beetle, rolled the disk of the rising sun over the eastern horizon at daybreak.

This coin is packaged within a textured box stamped with the Golden Treasures scarab beetle design. It's accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.
