2022 2 oz Mali Icons of Heritage Series - Egypt 24K Gilded Antiqued Silver Coin with Onyx Cabochon
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.
