King Tut ruled Egypt for just 9 years, dying at the age of 19 and becoming little more than a footnote in the history of the Egyptian Empire. Following the discovery of his tomb and intact, solid gold coffin in 1922, King Tut became the most famous of Ancient Egypt’s pharaohs. Though some believed he was murdered on the throne, his death was actually believed to be the result of an infection following a broken leg.
On the obverse of each gold coin is a right-profile portrait of King Tut. The Boy King’s image is all you’ll see on this face as there are no text engravings on this face of the coin, but the incuse design and rough finish are further enhanced with a rimless design that adds to the ancient appeal of the coins.
The reverse side of the 2017 1 oz Gold Republic of Chad Egyptian Relic Series King Tut Gold Coins is the image of the nation’s coat of arms, which includes the heraldic crest with a lion on the right and a goat on the left. Engravings on this face include “Republique du Tchad,” “1 Troy Oz.,” “3000 Francs CFA,” “2017,” and “.9999 Fine Gold.”
