- 2022 Virenium® 3 Coin Set
- Issued on behalf of the Bank of Sierra Leone
- Limited to 999 each
- 3 Coins presented in Individual Presentation Packs
Pobjoy Mint is thrilled to announce the release of a phenomenal three coin set on behalf of Sierra Leone to commemorate the Centenary of the discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb.
Most of Tutankhamun’s popularity stems from the fact that his tomb was discovered in 1922 in the Valley of the Kings in Luxor almost completely intact by English archaeologist and Egyptologist Howard Carter.
The first coin features the 'Death Mask' - A popular icon for Ancient Egypt, with Tutankhamun's mask being undoubtedly the most renowned of all the artefacts recovered.
The second coin features the 'Coffinette' - Capturing the process of mummification, in which pharaoh’s internal organs were removed from its body and preserved in four miniature coffinettes.
The third coin features the 'Throne' - Among many treasures recovered by Howard Carter, the gold throne was certainly one of the most significant, depicting an image of the boy King and his Queen.
The coins are available as a shaped $1 and produced in Virenium®, a metal developed by Pobjoy Mint which is light gold in colour. These stunning coins will be presented in individual Pobjoy Mint presentation packs. The obverse of the coin features an effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II produced exclusively by Pobjoy Mint.
