King Tut’s tomb was first discovered by a British Egyptologist in 1922. What stunned many at the time of its discovery was the solid gold coffin. Inside were the remains of a pharaoh who, to that date, had been relatively unknown and lost to the history of the world.
Tut came to power as a young teen as the 12 pharaoh of Egypt’s 18th dynasty during the 3rd century BC. Tut was so young when his father died that he likely had to rely on advisors to help him rule over Ancient Egypt. Though he is relatively unknown to history, one of his greatest achievements was rolling back the changes of his father and resorting to traditional Egyptian values.
Each of these 2016 5 oz Republic of Chad Egyptian Relic Series King Tut Silver Coins have a BU grade. Coins in this condition exhibit no signs of wear and tear, but do include minor flaws that include breaks the luster, spotted surfaces, and contact marks from coining.

These thick 5 oz coins have a rimless design that further enhances the visual brilliance.
