Nefertiti was an Egyptian queen known as the Great Royal Wife of the Egyptian Pharaoh Akhenaten. She lived from 1370 BC to 1330 BC, and together with her husband was known for commencing a religious revolution in Egypt. In particular, they ushered in an era in which people worshiped only one god: Aten, the sun disc.
She and her husband, often known as Amenhotep IV, ruled over what is widely regarded as one of the wealthiest periods of Ancient Egyptian history. The manner of her death remains a mystery, with some believing she died before her husband and other scholars suggesting she potentially ruled as Neferneferuaten from the time of her husband’s death to the rise of Tutankhamun.
On the obverse of each 1/10 oz Monarch Egyptian Nefertiti Silver Round is the right-profile bust of Nefertiti. This depiction of the Egyptian queen is taken from a famous bust of her created by the sculptor Thutmose, later found in his workshop. This bust is currently held in Berlin’s Neues Museum.
The reverse of each of the silver rounds in this collection features a collection of hieroglyphs that reflect the writing style of Ancient Egyptians. All of these rounds include an antique appearance that gives them the look and feel of ancient coinage.
Additionally, these 1/10 oz Monarch Egyptian Nefertiti Silver Rounds all have an offset striking of Nefertiti’s image. These images are purposely offset using a hand-stamping process to give the rounds a truly unique finish to imitate the appearance of ancient coinage. No two coins in this collection look exactly the same as a result.
