2 oz 2017 Egyptian Relic Series | Pharaoh Ramesses II - After Life Silver Coin
Purchase your 2 oz 2017 Egyptian Relic Series Pharaoh Ramesses II After Life silver coin from our online store for the best price on the web. Scottsdale Mint, on behalf of the People’s Republic of Chad, began their Egyptian Relic series in 2016 and this coin, along with a coincident release of the same coin with a fresh face, is the fifth masterpiece in the range.
From the obverse, a haunting relic greets us, in the form of a fleshless portrait of Pharaoh Ramesses II of Egypt. Designed to appear as if freshly snatched from a royal resting place, the field is adorned with astonishingly realistic cracks, chisel marks and faded hieroglyphs, as well as the Pharaoh’s name, which is the only text on the obverse.
The reverse is home to Chad’s beautiful coat of arms, a lion and a goat upholding the shield, with a banner bearing the watchwords, ‘Unite, Travail, Progres’ below. Also on the reverse, you’ll find Chad’s legend, as well as the coin’s purity, weight, denominational value and year of release, 2017.
Ramesses the Great ruled over Egypt between 1279 and 1213 BC and the ‘signs of damage’ on these coins certainly aren’t inaccurate, since his tomb was flooded 7 times and over the ages, everything in it was damaged almost beyond recognition. Diversify your portfolio with coins from this truly unique and undeniably beautiful series, by ordering your 2 oz 2017 Egyptian Relic Series Pharoah Ramesses II After Life silver coin today.
