Osiris was one of the first gods from Ancient Egypt to be associated with the practice of mummification. The ritual of mummification is one that preserves the body of a departed pharaoh or other wealthy Egyptian. The purpose is to preserve the body for use in the afterlife, where the individual will be reunited with Osiris and other former pharaohs of the Egyptian empire.
All of the 2 oz Antique Silver Osiris Rounds available in this listing come with a perfect certification from the NGC. A silver round with a Mint State 70 certification is one that earned a perfect grade. Rounds in this condition have full, original mint luster and present with no detracting flaws of any kind on the surface areas or design elements.
The obverse side of 2 oz Antique Osiris Rounds features the partially-mummified figure of the deity. His wife, Isis, had retrieved his body after his brother murdered him. Isis brought him back to life by wrapping his body, partially, in mummification wraps and performing a ceremony. He is depicted with his eyes closed as he clutches a crook and flail in his hands. Upon his head, he wears the Atef crown, a symbol of the power of the pharaohs.
On the reverse field of the 2 oz Antique Silver Osiris Rounds, you will find various images of Osiris and other Egyptian symbols. His body is now fully mummified with a pyramid tomb in the background field. Near his feet, there are four clay pots with animal shapes and heads. Each of those pots likely holds vital organs from his body.
