On the obverse of the coin is the eye of Ra, the God who is responsible for rolling the sun across the sky every day as well as transforming souls and bodies. Also on this side is the Ankh symbol also known as the Key of Life.
The scarab beetle is known for its rolling of dung into balls. Because this action is similar to the belief the Ra rolled the sun across the sky, the scarab came to be a symbol of rebirth or regeneration as the sun is a kind of rebirth with each new day. It also came to symbolize immortality, transformation, protection, and resurrection. Consequently, art around and in tombs often includes scarab beetles.
With the use of smartminting® technology, the CIT, Coin Invest AG, a world renowned mint, created this work of art using 1 oz of silver in a process that makes the design ultra high relief. Included in this coin is an embedded crystal. In hieroglyphs is depicted Tutankhamun’s individual name and his title of Pharaoh as it was found on his throne when it was discovered 100 years ago.
