An Ultra High Relief Coin You Need to Keep Your Eye On
One of the world’s most mysterious and atmospheric ancient buildings is the Temple of Horus in Edfu, Egypt. Dedicated to the avenging son of Isis and Osiris, it was built between 237 and 47 B.C. only to be lost to the sands of Egypt when the pagan cult that worshiped the ancient Egyptian falcon-headed god was banned. Today, its roof still intact, the temple is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Egypt.
One of the most iconic deities of ancient Egypt, the aquiline face and beak of the falcon-god Horus 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 breathe new life into Egypt’s mythical sky god. The stern-looking face of Horus seems to rise off this coin as if in search of the evil god Set, the murderer of Osiris. 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 European archeologists freed the massive complex from tons of sand and silt in the 1800s. In fact, The Eye of Horus is considered to be a symbol of protection – no doubt because the eyes of Horus were said to be the sun and the moon.
