Pobjoy Mint is thrilled to announce the release of a brand new unique pyramid shaped coin on behalf of Sierra Leone, to commemorate the Centenary of the discovery of Tutankhamun’s Tomb, a sequel to the first original sand coins produced in 2009.  

The fascination with Tutankhamun as we know today didn’t necessarily stem from the king himself but more so from his Tomb. Tutankhamun’s Tomb was discovered in 1922 almost completely intact in the Valley of the Kings, Luxor, by English archaeologist and Egyptologist Howard Carter.

The Tomb consisted of four chambers, an entrance staircase and corridor, all of which were filled with an abundance of more than 5,000 artefacts including thrones, furniture, statues and the infamous ‘Death Mask’. 

This stunning new coin has been created in a unique triangle shape to emulate the Egyptian pyramids and features Tutankhamun’s glorious funerary mask surrounded by hieroglyphics. To make this coin unique, sand from the boy kings tomb in the Valley of the Kings was collected by Taya Pobjoy, Managing Director of Pobjoy Mint and has been encapsulated behind a thin plate of glass. This coin is available as a $10 coin produced in 1oz Proof Fine Silver and presented in a unique Pobjoy Mint presentation box with a special certificate of authenticity which includes a photograph showing the collection of the sand from the entrance of the tomb. The obverse of the coin features the Coat of Arms of Sierra Leone surrounded by hieroglyphics.
