King Tut became a worldwide sensation when his tomb was discovered in 1922. What made this discovery so special is how the tomb was nearly intact. Another thing that sparked a lot of attention was the fact that he was a king at a young age and died at a young age. Records show he took the throne at eight or nine years of age. He had multiple health issues during his life and died at age nineteen. Because the tomb was in such great shape, they recovered many great relics in perfect shape. The burial mask of King Tut was of particular interest because it was so beautiful and ornate. This burial mask is recreated on the obverse of this bar. The ultra-high relief helps to capture the detail of this incredible mask.
The obverse side of this bar has design elements that repeat across it. The Argentia mint’s logo is in the center with ‘5 oz FINE SILVER .9999’ underneath.
