2022 Cook Isl. $1 Legacy of the Pharaohs 50g Copper Coin
Perhaps the most famous archaeological site in the world, the Pyramids of Giza and, particularly, the Great Pyramid, are among the Seven Wonders of the World. And this spectacular copper coin honours this historic site in super high relief and tremendous detail.
Featuring three Pharaohs on the reverse - Akhenaten, Thutmosis III, and Sobekneferu, the first female Pharaoh - this 50g copper beauty also bears hieroglyphics from the ancient artefact “The Stele of Revealing” which resides in the Boulak Museum in Cairo. The obverse of this coin is additionally amazing as it maps the site around the great Pyramids of Giza in stunning relief and detail. You can literally count the different layers of brick on each Pyramid! Look closely and you can also see the Sphinx rising off the surface!
A stunning coin, each 50 gram, pure copper collector issue is housed in a floating presentation frame and is super value.
