This is the first release of a collection of coins that capture all of the grandeur and splendor of the Pharaohs and the architectural wonders that were built to honor them.

Each of these smartminted® ultra-high relief coins shows three different Pharaohs on the reverse and an incredible birds-eye view of the Giza Necropolis on the obverse. The three Pharaohs featured are Akhenaten, Thutmosis III, and Sobekneferu, the first female Pharaoh. They are seen standing next to each other in incredible relief. Each having its own distinctive look. Behind them are hieroglyphics from the ancient artifact “The Stele of Revealing” which resides in the Boulak Museum in Cairo. The obverse of this coin is really amazing and shows the great Pyramids of Giza in stunning relief and detail. You can literally count the different layers of brick on each Pyramid! Look closely and you can also see the Sphinx rising off the surface. There are also plenty of other structural details to feast your eyes upon. All this surrounds the domed effigy.
