For thousands of years, cats were worshiped as regal creatures in Egypt. Cats are featured all over the tombs of the Pharaohs and many of the Egyptian gods were depicted with cat heads. This reverence for cats is the inspiration for the Argentia Egyptian Cat 5 oz Silver Bar. This modern design features a cat with Egyptian elements. This ultra-high relief image looks great in .9999 fine silver. The antique finish provides a sharp contrast for the design by highlighting the shadows and contours.

The cat design here has great detail and this detail is picked up perfectly by the ultra-high relief. The ornate design elements on the cat that are clearly inspired by Egyptian art covers the cat from head to tail. The cat is sitting in profile and one can’t help seeing how regal and proud the cat looks. Behind the cat’s head is a kind of sunburst design that radiates in the background. Cats were so much a part of Egyptian culture that they even incorporated them in the artwork honoring their gods. Many of them were depicted having cat heads even. The antique finish makes the detail stand out more with its contrast.
The reverse side of the bar has design elements repeated across it. In the middle is the Argentia mint’s logo. Underneath this logo is ‘5 oz FINE SILVER .9999’.
