In Ancient Egypt, the scarab beetle was seen as the epitome of divinity.

As a symbol of rebirth, it was believed to illustrate the Sun's heavenly path across the sky and its daily self-renewal. Produced from precious metals and gemstones, these beautifully crafted sacred beetles were popular talismans, often used as currency. Today, the scarab-shaped amulets are excavated in the countries that once had commercial relations with Ancient Egypt.

Each 2oz silver coin is decorated with Ruby stones, and is housed in a timber case with certificate of authenticity. Mintage just 500.
