The craftsmanlike coin is the result of connecting the genius of designers from two far-distant epochs of contemporary and ancient times.
The coin exquisitely maintained in ancient Egyptian style fascinates its admirers with its Egyptian details characteristic for that period – a faithful replication of images of three great pharaohs as well as decorative motifs taken from the tomb of Queen Hetepheres and the statue of Nofret of Meidum.
This pyramid-shaped coin is closed in a special capsule and placed in an attractive fold-out presentation box for effective exposure.
The three sides of the reverse depict effigies of three great pharaohs of the fourth dynasty – Khufu, Khafra and Menkaure. The forth side shows decorative elements characteristic for Ancient Egyptian times, taken from the tomb of Queen Hetepheres (Khufu’s mother) and the statue of Nofret.
In the central part of the coin – the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. On the right – the mint mark (m/w). Along the rim – inscriptions: NIUE ISLAND (the issuer), 2014 (the year of issue), 15 DOLLARS (the face value), the hallmark – Ag 999 and the name of the coin: THE GREAT PYRAMIDS.
