The Glorious Golden Mask of King Tut in Ultra High Relief
For many years, it was believed a curse existed on those who defiled the tomb of Egyptian Pharaoh King Tutankhamun. In 1922, after more than 3,000 years of uninterrupted repose, the tomb was discovered almost intact in the Valley of the Kings by British archaeologist Howard Carter, and within ten years no fewer than 11 people died under eerie or suspicious circumstances. While science has refuted the so-called “Curse of the Pharaohs,” many are not so sure. Whatever side of the occult ledger you stand, the fabulous treasures discovered in the tomb are without a doubt among the most famous ancient artifacts ever unearthed.
The most recognizable of those artifacts, the Golden Mask of King “Tut” 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 recreate the nearly two-foot high original that is universally regarded as the most symbolic object of ancient Egypt. The youthful face of the boy king seems to rise off this coin as if he were about to whisper the unsolved mystery of how he died so young. 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 fabulous coins will be released, an unusually small mintage for that pays tribute to an historic artifact that has proven to be immensely popular ever since Howard Carter and his team of archeologists discovered it along with other relics like a solid-gold sarcophagus, gilded thrones, sandals and fresh linen underwear.
