Tutankhamun- Discovery Of Tutankhamun 1oz Proof Silver Coin
This unique Coin in the shape of a pyramid has a special touch of history captured inside of it.
In 1922, archaeologist Howard Carter's discovery of Tutankhamun's nearly intact tomb in Egypt's Valley of the Kings mesmerized the world. Tutankhamun's tomb, a four-chambered wonder filled with over 5,000 artifacts, including his famous 'Death Mask,' ignited a global fascination.
Fast forward to 2022, where a unique coin emerged, shaped like Egypt's pyramids, bearing Tutankhamun's funerary mask amid hieroglyphics. What set it apart was the sand from Tutankhamun's tomb, encapsulated behind glass. Crafted in 1oz Proof Fine Silver, this $10 coin arrived in a Pobjoy Mint presentation box, complete with a certificate of authenticity and a photograph of the sand collection. Its obverse displayed Sierra Leone's Coat of Arms amidst hieroglyphic charm.
Tutankhamun, who ruled from 1341 to 1324 B.C., gained posthumous global fame thanks to the discovery of his Death Mask, a gold masterpiece with 150 precious jewels. This relic reignited the world's fascination with ancient Egypt, making 'Howard Carter' and 'Tutankhamun' household names. The coin, a tangible link to this timeless past, encapsulates the enduring allure of history and the enigmatic boy-king who transcends time.
