Khnum is said to be the god responsible for the source waters of the Nile River. His depictions in the human form by Ancient Egyptians featured a man with the head of a ram pouring water from a clay pot that would eventually flow to form the Nile River. In real life, the Nile River is a proven source of life in northeast Africa. Its annual floods bring soil-enriching silt and clay to the local soil.
On the obverse of the 2 oz Silver Khnum Round in the Egyptian Gods Series, you’ll find that human depiction of the god Khnum. The design features some of the most important symbols of Khnum, who was believed to be a creator god for humans as well. He would use a potter’s wheel and clay to make humans to implant in the wombs of mothers. In this design, he stands at his potter’s wheel crafting a man out of clay.
The reverse side of all 2 oz Silver Khnum Rounds is the image of a ram at an altar. The ram was the Earthly representation of the god Khnum, and engravings on this face include “2 oz 999 Ag” to denote the weight, purity, and metal content.
