Shining seductively, rarely encountered and blessed with a comforting weight, the solidity of gold has a quality of its own. No other precious metal is so loaded with meaning. Among these many related abstractions, we hear of gold’s divinity, its immortality, its purity and its power. By means of this series, we tell the story of the value of gold and the magical role it has played in advanced civilisations.
Since time immemorial gold has had a special effect on those who behold it.
The Magic of Gold series traces the mysterious nature of gold in Ancient cultures. No other metal has as much symbolic meaning as gold and no other concrete substance has been linked with so many abstract concepts, including heavenliness, immortality, purity and power. The word ‘gold’ is written on each coin in the series in the respective script of the epoch and culture represented on it.
All the coins are a reflection of ancient art treasures. What was made of gold in the past still is today and, as it has for thousands of years, gold still has a mysterious and magical power.
An aura of mystery surrounds Gold of the Pharaohs, the second coin in The Magic of Gold series, which traces the mysterious nature of gold in Ancient cultures. Made of pure gold, the ‘flesh of the gods’ and the symbol of eternity in Ancient Egypt, the coin features the death mask of the ‘boy king’, Tutankhamun. More than 3,000 years old, the most celebrated of all the famous burial objects uncovered in Egypt’s Valley of the Kings is still casting its spell in the 21st century.
The coin’s obverse features a collage of Ancient Egyptian images, with Tutankhamun’s father Akhenaten in its centre. The elder Pharaoh is on his knees with hands raised in homage to the sun god, Aten, as the lance-shaped rays of the solar disk descend towards him. In the background we see a sarcophagus containing a Pharaoh, under which the hieroglyphic for gold can be seen.
