King Tutankhamun ruled Egypt as pharaoh for 10 years until his death at age 19, around 1324 B.C. Though his rule was notable for reversing the religious reforms of his father Akhenaten, Tutankhamuns legacy was largely negated by his successors. He was barely known to the modern world until 1922, when British archaeologist Howard Carter chiseled into the intact tomb of King Tut. This coin celebrates the 100th anniversary of his remains being found with stunning imagery and a reverse frosted surface. Provident Metals currently offers you the 2023 Republic of Sierra Leone Sarcophagus 1 oz Silver Coin for purchase online.
Genetic testing has verified that King Tut was the grandson of the great pharaoh Amenhotep III, and almost certainly the son of Akhenaten, a controversial figure in the history of the 18th dynasty of Egypts New Kingdom (c.1550-1295 B.C.). Akhenaten upended a centuries-old religious system to favor the worship of a single deity, the sun god Aten and moved Egypts religious capital from Thebes to Amarna. After Akhenatens death, two intervening pharaohs briefly reigned before the nine-year-old prince, then called Tutankhaten, took the throne.
Obverse visuals on the 2023 Sarcophagus 1 oz Silver Coin include the seal of the Republic of Sierra Leone. It displays three lions with one in the middle and two lifting themselves up on their hind legs on both sides of two palm trees. The other inscriptions found on this side of the coin include, Republic of Sierra Leone, 2023, and Unity, Freedom, and Justice.
Reverse designs on the 2023 Republic of Sierra Leone Sarcophagus Silver Coin include the death mask of King Tut engraved in exquisite detail. It showcases the gorgeous Egyptian crown and a snake at the peak of the crown. The inscriptions found on this side of the coin include; Tutankhamun along with the weight and denomination of the coin!
