Egyptian-themed products are growing in variety and popularity right now in the precious metal marketplace. If there’s one thing these products have in common, it is an ancient appeal and variety of design that attract both investors and collectors. For Monarch Precious Metal products, the similarities to other lineups end there.
All 3 oz Silver Monarch Egyptian Relic Bars listed with Silver.com today are unique among other bars because of Monarch’s dedication to craftsmanship. The design of Horus and the Falcon of Horus on the obverse and reverse are purposely struck off-center to ensure no two bars look exactly the same to one another.
Further, the refiners at Monarch have applied both an antique patina and an “anti-polish” to the bars, giving them the visual appeal and old world charm of an ancient coin or artifact. On top of that, the very shape of these bars builds on the uniqueness of each piece. These individual bars appear as though they could have been chipped right out of an ancient Egyptian tomb.
Horus was known as the Sky God to the Ancient Egyptians, and was one of the oldest gods worshipped by the Egyptian people. More than just a Sky God, Horus is said to represent the sky itself. The sun and moon were considered his eyes, left and right respectively. When he traversed the sky, he took the form of a falcon.
On the obverse of the 3 oz Silver Monarch Egyptian Relic Bar is the human form of Horus. He was often depicted by Egyptians in human form as a man with a human body and the head of a falcon.
The reverse of the Egyptian Relic Bars features the depiction of Horus in falcon form as he traverses the sky itself. The sun is captured directly above the falcon on this face of the bar, which flies with its wings spread completely apart.
