2022 2oz Gilded Colour Coin – Tutankhamun 100th Anniversary
"*" indicates required fields
Marking 100 years since the extraordinary discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb, this coin portrays Tutankhamun’s spectacular death mask – the best-known artefact from what is probably the most spectacular archaeological find of all time. The image is gilded in 24-carat gold and features applications of colour representing the famous artefact’s glass paste inlays. Behind the mask are hieroglyphs redrawn from the back of the mask, as well as Tutankhamun’s elliptical cartouche.
It is now 100 years since archaeologist Howard Carter discovered Tutankhamun’s tomb. The young pharaoh became a worldwide sensation, igniting massive new interest in ancient Egypt, and to this day remains a source of intense fascination. Setting the discovery apart, Tutankhamun’s place of rest had been virtually untouched by tomb robbers. Along with the mummified body of a king almost 3,500 years old, its fabulous golden treasures remained remarkably undamaged.
