All products from Monarch Precious Metals have something truly unique about them, which helps set the mint’s products apart from competitors. These ½ oz Monarch Egyptian Silver Rounds might all feature the same obverse and reverse designs, but look a little closer and you’ll notice that no two rounds are exactly the same.
Monarch Precious Metals purposely hand-stamped the designs on each round off center. This gives the coins a sense of old world charm and appearance, given the lack of precise coining presses prior to the modern era. To further enhance the appeal of these ½ oz. rounds, Monarch applied an antiquing patina and anti-polish to give the coin’s a faded, centuries-old look.
On the obverse of each ½ oz Monarch Egyptian Silver Round is the image of an Egyptian mummy, captured in left-profile relief and surrounded by engravings and artwork commonly found in Egyptian tombs and artistry.
The reverse side of the rounds features a scarab beetle in the center of the design, with an Eye of Horus found above it. Modern touches include the use of the Monarch Precious Metals logo, a crown formed by the letters “MPM,” and the engravings identifying the round’s weight, purity, and metal content.
Monarch Precious Metals is a private minting facility located in the Rogue Valley of southeastern Oregon. It was founded in 2008 at the onset of the Great Recession, and continues its successful run today with its unique lineup of hand-poured silver and gold products.
