Ultra High Relief Coin Breathes New Life Into Egypt’s God of Death
Anubis, ancient Egypt’s god of death, is one fierce deity. With the head of a jackal and the body of a man, he is depicted in the Book of the Dead reigning over the underworld measuring the hearts of the dead to see if they are worthy enough to live an eternal life. Anubis was so important to Egyptian culture that his acolytes even established their own city in Upper Egypt at Cynopolis, which translates to “the City of the Dog.”
One of the most iconic symbols of ancient Egypt, the grim visage of Anubis is now featured on a superb Ultra High Relief coin in Ghana’s “Legacy of Egypt” series. This one-ounce Cupronickel (CuNi) coin comes gilded in 24-karat gold and colorized to bring this god of death vividly to life. The stern-looking face of Anubis seems to rise off this coin as if in search of his next soul for judgement. The detail is all the more impressive thanks to the gorgeous Enhanced Uncirculated condition that features a satin-like finish and selectively polished elements to enhance the coin’s three-dimensional look.
The shaped coin measures approximately 40 mm in diameter and is 2 Cedis legal tender in the African nation of Ghana. Just 2,500 of these mysterious coins will be released, an unusually small mintage for a theme that has proven to be an immensely popular subject ever since the first depictions of Anubis were discovered by Egyptologists traveling with Napoleon Bonaparte in the late 18th century.
