Like the mythological beliefs of the Ancient Romans and the Ancient Greeks, the Ancient Egyptians had a complex belief system with various attributes and skills assigned to deities. Among the more important deities of Ancient Egypt was Sekhmet, a warrior goddess associated with the pharaohs in life and death. Provident Metals currently has the latest release available in the form of the 2 oz Silver Antique Sekhmet Round for purchase online.
When you purchase the all-new 2 oz Silver Antique Sekhmet Round in the Egyptian Gods Series from Provident Metals, you will receive a round with beautiful antique visuals. The application of an antique polish on modern bullion helps deliver distinctive visual appeal and gives each piece the appearance of historic coinage. The ultra-high-relief strike of these rounds creates greater visual depth and separation between the design element and field of the round. The rounds in this series ship individually inside of plastic flips or in tubes for multiples of 10 silver rounds.
Sekhmet is shown in her human form in the obverse field of the 2 oz Silver Antique Sekhmet Round. This visual shows her figure as she is seated near a small fire. The sickle behind her back has drops of blood falling from its blade. The symbol of the coiled snake above her head is known as the Uraeus and was popular in Ancient Egyptian symbolism. Sekhmets figure on this side takes the form of a female body with the head of a lioness. There are no text inscriptions on this field, though you will notice two sets of hieroglyphs in the lower-left. The bottom set of the two is the name of Sekhmet in Egyptian hieroglyphs.
Another depiction of Sekhmet is found on the reverse side of 2 oz Silver Antique Sekhmet Rounds. This time, however, she takes on her full animal form with the body of a cat. As the protector of the pharaohs, the cat is shown sitting on the top of a sarcophagus that holds the body of a departed pharaoh. Inscriptions on this face are found in the lower rim of the design field with hieroglyph-like text of 2 oz, 999, and Ag.
Sekhmet was known to most Ancient Egyptians as the daughter of the famed sun god, Ra. Though she is closely associated with the armies of the pharaohs as a warrior goddess, and as the protector of the pharaohs in the afterlife, she was also viewed as a goddess responsible for bringing about plagues.
