The practice of mummification in Ancient Egypt was used to preserve the body of a departed pharaoh so it could rejoin the pharaoh’s soul in the afterlife. While many gods became associated with mummification and the afterlife throughout Egyptian history, one of the first of those was Osiris.

All of the 2 oz Silver Egyptian Gods Series Rounds are struck in ultra-high relief. An ultra high-relief round is a silver blank that is struck with the design die several times in the coining press under intense pressure. The result of this coining process is a blank with a deeper visual field and greater 3D relief on the design element. A 2 oz ultra high-relief round is almost like a small statue with its impressive relief on the design element.
These 2 oz Silver Osiris Rounds are available to you at Silver.com with a Mint State 69 certification from the NGC. Silver rounds in MS69 condition have full, original mint luster and a maximum of two minor detracting flaws. Acceptable flaws at this grading level include only minuscule contact marks or hairlines that are located outside of the primary focal points of the round’s design.
The obverse of 2 oz Silver Osiris Rounds comes with a depiction of the resurrected Osiris. Murdered and dismembered by his brother Set, Osiris’ wife Isis collected his scattered body parts from the Nile River and wrapped him in mummification cloths up to his mid-torso. After performing a magical ceremony, he was temporarily resurrected from the dead. Osiris is shown in this design wrapped to his mid-torso with the Atef crown on his head, and a crook and flail in his hands.
On the reverse side of 2 oz Silver Osiris Rounds, you will find an image of the mummified remains of Osiris. He is shown with his body completely wrapped in front of a pyramid tomb. There are four clay pots set two on either side of his body, with an inscription below his feet of “2 oz Ag 999.”
