So what if we x-rayed King Tutankhamun’s sarcophagus? What would that look like? Well thanks to CIT we don’t have to wonder anymore. This coin shows us what it might look like.
On the reverse side of the coin is a side profile of the boy king, King Tut. His image is on the left of the coin. To the right of him is his sarcophagus. Thanks to the smartminting® technology, every detail of Tut’s portrait and his sarcophagus is represented here. In the background there are hieroglyphics.

The whole side of the coin has a black finish and the skeleton has a blue color reminiscent of looking at bones on an X-ray. To the left of the images is ‘ELIZABETH II’. At the top of the coin is ‘5 DOLLARS’. To right of the images is ‘COOK ISLANDS’. At the bottom of this side is ‘2022’.
