Available in October with the arrival of the latest 2017 issue in the Egypt Relic Series, we are thrilled to offer the complete set of the first three releases from the Scottsdale Mint.  If you haven't already discovered these unique and beautiful collector coins this is your chance to get the first three issues in one shot.

2016 5 Ounce King Tutenkhamen

King Tutankhamen, the boy pharaoh, is one of the most popular and intriguing Egyptian rulers. Scottsdale Mint used their high-quality minting techniques and rimless design, on a remarkable 11.8 mm thick coin, to replicate a hand-carved Egyptian relic. This 5 oz Silver coin is the first in the "Egyptian Relic" series and features a hand-brushed Antique Proof finish and chiseled granite edge to bring King Tut to life. The coin has a distinct design and a rough finish, giving it the appearance of an ancient coin in use for thousands of years.

2016 2 Ounce Pharaoh Horus

Horus is one of the most significant ancient Egyptian Pharaohs. He was worshiped from at least the late prehistoric Egypt until the Ptolemaic Kingdom and Roman Egypt. This 2 oz Silver coin is the 2nd and final release for the 2016 Egyptian Relic series and again features a hand-brushed Antique Proof finish and chiseled granite edge.

2017 5 Ounce Queen Nefertiti

The mysterious ancient Queen Nefertiti was one of the most powerful women in the ancient times. It is believed that she lived an epoch from around 1370 B.C. to 1330 B.C. A bust of Queen Nefertiti discovered in 1912 is one of the widely acknowledged symbols of antiquated Egypt. Her eminence as the most beautiful women & icon of female beauty in today’s culture is a benchmark. The name Nefertiti signifies the same, “The beautiful one has arrived".
