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 coins produced in 2008.
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, many of which were found to be made from solid gold. This vast collection consisted of thrones, furniture, statues and masks including the infamous ‘Death Mask’ of Tutankhamun.
This stunning new coin design features the ‘Death Mask’ of Tutankhamun with hieroglyphics in the background and has been created in a unique pyramid shape which has been Goldclad® and coloured to really show the beauty of this historical artefact. This coin is available as a $1 coin produced in Bronze and presented in a Pobjoy Mint presentation pack. The obverse of the coin features the Coat of Arms of Sierra Leone surrounded by hieroglyphics.
