Each of the 2 oz Osiris Silver Rounds in this product listing from JM Bullion comes a near-perfect certification from the NGC. A Mint State 69 certification is assigned to products that exhibit full, original mint luster with a maximum of two minor detracting flaws present. These flaws are limited in nature to minuscule contact marks or hairlines and limited in scope to the areas outside of the primary focal points of the round.
Osiris is one of Ancient Egypt’s oldest-known and worshipped deities. The written record regarding Osiris first catalogs worship of the deity in the 25th century BCE. However, those records use a term to refer to Osiris that was first used as early as the First Dynasty in the 34th century BCE, indicating it is possible that he was worshiped as early as that point in time some 5,400 years ago.
On the obverse of the 2 oz Osiris Silver Round is a depiction of Osiris as a partially-mummified figure. It is said he was first mummified by his wife, Isis, only up to his waist or mid-torso to collect his dismembered body parts back together. In this design, he is captured in front-facing relief with the Atef crown on his head, and a crook and flail in his hands.
The reverse field of 2 oz Osiris Silver Rounds comes with a depiction of the fully-mummified remains of Osiris. His resurrection at the hands of Isis was short-lived, and once he passed on his body was mummified and buried in a tomb. Near his feet, you will notice four clay pots, most likely holding his vital organs.
