The obverse shows Nefertiti in profile against early Egyptian artwork that is laid out in storytelling fashion around the Djibouti Coat of Arms.
This amazing coin is struck from 3 ounces of 99.9% pure silver with a low mintage of just 1,999 pieces in total production.
The Nefertiti Bust, now captured in pure silver, is a painted stucco-coated limestone sculpture of Nefertiti, the Great Royal Wife of Egyptian pharaoh Akhenaten. The work is believed to have been crafted in 1345 BCE by Thutmose because it was found in his workshop in Amarna, Egypt and is one of the most-copied works of ancient Egypt.
Nefertiti has become one of the most famous women of the ancient world and a global icon of feminine beauty.
