Ptolemies were people of Macedonian Greek origin who ruled the Egyptian Empire following the death of Alexander the Great, which brought an end to the Hellenistic Period of Egyptian rule. Throughout the rule of the Ptolemies, the rulers of Egypt spoke only Greek and refused, largely, to learn Egyptian.
Cleopatra originally ruled jointly in Egypt with her father, but when she came to rule singularly, she used Egyptian culture to her advantage. Cleopatra spoke both Greek and Egyptian, and told the people that she was the incarnation of the goddess Isis, known as the ideal mother figure and wife.
On the obverse face of these 2 oz Silver Elemetal Egyptian Gods Series Cleopatra Rounds you’ll find the image of Cleopatra as the pharaoh of Egypt. She is surrounded by multiple items of Egyptian origin, including the cartouche with the lineage of her name on it in hieroglyphs and the Eye of Horus.
The reverse of each of these silver rounds bears the winged image of Cleopatra as the goddess Isis. This image is featured seated in front of a pyramid similar to those found in Giza complex of pyramids outside of Cairo, Egypt.
