2022 Palau $5 Egyptian Scarab - Ramses II 1oz Silver Coin
Due in stock End of January 2023
With this stunning shaped coin, CIT continues a concept first seen in 2021, the Egyptian Scarab. Whereas that first coin represented King Tutankhamun, this 2022 version reflets King Ramses II!
One of the most powerful and revered Pharaohs of any Egyptian era, Ramses II mounted several military campaigns, bringing both Canaan and Phoenicia back under control. And truly, his most eye-opening legacy is the incredible temple constructed, and still standing today, at Abu Simbel.
Thanks to the enhanced smartminting® technology this is a numismatic piece of art, in a 1oz silver ultra-high relief with a dazzling red crystal. It is decorated with two names of Ramses II in hieroglyphene style - his own individual name and his title as a Pharaoh.
