Scottsdale Mint has previously released four coins in the Egyptian Relic Series. These include two five ounce coins, a gold coin, and a two ounce coin. The series started in 2016, but this final release of 2017 brings a new take on the collection.

The Ancient Egyptians had a deep belief in the afterlife. Pharaohs and those of high societal standing were intricately prepared after death, with their organs removed and precious belongings entombed with them so that they could go into the afterlife in good standing after leaving this world.
