The 2022 3 oz Legacy of the Pharaohs Antique Silver coin is a part of the popular Legacy of the Pharaohs series. Where the gilded is shiny this one has an antique or kind of pewter look that brings out the contrast of the design by making the shadows deeper. The effect is a more three dimensional look. However, the coin is still made with the high quality .999 fine silver.
These coins feature three pharaohs of Egypt and the Pyramids of Giza. There are only 2022 available worldwide.

On the obverse side of the coin is a bird’s eye view of a map of the Pyramids of Giza in high detail. Near the bottom is a small portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. This is Ian Rank-Broadley’s design he created in 1998. The image shows the queen wearing the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland tiara which was given to her as a gift at her wedding to Prince Philip. It is her favorite diadem. Above her head to the left is ‘ELIZABETH II’. To the right above her head is ‘COOK ISLANDS’.
The reverse side of the coin has a highly detailed portrait of three pharaohs, Akhenaten, Thutmosis III, and Sobekneferu. Behind them are hieroglyphics. Written above the pharaohs is ‘LEGACY OF THE PHARAOHS’.
The pharaohs of Egypt were believed to be an intermediary between the deities and the people. They ruled as a combination of a religious leader and a monarch. The pharaoh had a lot of responsibility from making laws, collecting taxes, defending Egypt from attackers, to maintaining cosmic power. As a testimony to their greatness, the pharaohs built pyramids. The most famous of the pyramids would have to be the Pyramids of Giza, a popular tourist destination for millions today.
