Each of the 2 oz Silver Osiris Rounds available to purchase in this Silver.com listing comes with a perfect certification from the NGC. A silver round with a Mint State 70 certification exhibits full, original mint luster and has no detracting flaws of any kind on the design elements and background fields.
The Silver Osiris Round comes with an ultra high-relief strike. When rounds are struck in ultra-high relief, immense pressure is used in the coining press and the blank is struck several times with the die. This creates greater visual depth for the field of the round and higher 3D relief for the design elements on the surface of the round.
On the obverse of 2 oz Silver Osiris Rounds is an image of the body of Osiris partially mummified. After his death and dismemberment at the hands of his brother, Osiris was resurrected by his wife through a process in which she mummified his body up to the mid-torso region. She performed a ceremony that brought life back to his body. In the design, his mummified remains are shown with crossed arms holding the crook and flail, while his head has the Atef crown atop it.
The reverse face of 2 oz Silver Osiris Rounds comes with a depiction of the mummified remains of Osiris. His resurrection was temporary, and when Osiris finally died, he was mummified. He became one of the first Ancient Egyptian gods associated with the process of mummification and was even assigned status as the god of death, the afterlife, and resurrection.
