The Egyptian God Series from the Elemetal Mint continues with an homage to the god Anubis. Known as the god of mummification and the afterlife, Anubis was the Greek language name for the god and was given during the period of Ptolemaic rule in Egypt.
Anubis was known to Egyptian society throughout its many dynasties over the course of thousands of years, but it was the Greek name of Anubis that stuck in the long run. The earliest Egyptians knew Anubis as the protector of graves and an embalmer, but the Middle Kingdom Egyptians looked to Orisis as the Lord of the underworld.
Often depicted as a half-man, half-dog creature, Anubis appears on the obverse of the 2 oz Elemetal Egyptian God Series Anubis Silver Round. He is depicted holding the scales of justice during the embalming ceremony of ancient Egyptians when the heart is weighed. In this ceremony, a newly deceased individual’s heart is weighed against a feather. If the feather is heavier, the individual moves on to the afterlife.
The reverse side of the Anubis Silver Round features the image of a jackal at rest atop a winged sun disc in front of a temple pyramid reflective of those built in and around the complex of pyramids built in Giza. The golden jackal was associated with Anubis and classified by early archaeologists as such, but was later reclassified through genetic testing as the African golden wolf.
Each of these 2 oz Elemetal Egyptian Gods Series Anubis Silver Rounds is a high-relief product. High-relief silver rounds feature brilliant 3D strikings of the design sets on a round, giving them a shockingly beautiful appearance. A high-relief round is produced using multiple strikings and intense pressure during the coining process.
