SENSATIONAL DISCOVERY

Causing a worldwide sensation, the almost 3,500-year-old tomb of King Tutankhamun was discovered by British archaeologist Howard Carter in Egypt’s Valley of the Kings in 1922. Resting on the mummified remains of the young pharaoh was an ornate death mask exquisitely crafted in gold - the lustrous precious metal considered by ancient Egyptians to be the skin of the gods.

Laden with magnificent treasures, the tomb

It is now 100 years since archaeologist Howard Carter discovered Tutankhamun’s tomb. The young pharaoh became a worldwide sensation, igniting massive new interest in ancient Egypt, and to this day remains a source of intense fascination.

Setting the discovery apart, Tutankhamun’s place of rest had been virtually untouched by tomb robbers. Along with the mummified body of a king almost 3,500 years old, its fabulous golden treasures remained remarkably undamaged.

PRESENTATION PACKAGING

Accompanied by a numbered certificate of authenticity, the coin is presented in a classic case with a transparent acrylic top and themed shipper.

ANNIVERSARY DESIGN

The coin portrays Tutankhamun’s spectacular death mask – the best-known artefact from what is probably the most spectacular archaeological find of all time. The image is gilded in 24-carat gold and features applications of colour representing the famous artefact’s glass paste inlays. Behind the mask are hieroglyphs redrawn from the back of the mask, as well as Tutankhamun’s elliptical cartouche.

Accompanying the design is the inscription ‘TUTANKHAMUN 100 YEARS’ and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.

ABOUT THE PERTH MINT

The Perth Mint opened in 1899 as the British Royal Mint’s 3rd branch in Australia. The historical Hay Street location handled gold refining until moving to a modern facility in April 1990. Ownership of the mint was transferred to the Government of Western Australia in July of 1970. Under an agreement with the Commonwealth Treasury, they were empowered to mint and market gold, silver, and platinum as Australian legal tender to investors and collectors worldwide. Today, they are amongst the elite world mints whose pure gold, silver, and platinum items are trusted without question. Items such as the Australian Nugget, Silver Coin Series (Kangaroo, Kookaburra, Koala, and Platypus to name a few), as well as the Australian Lunar Gold and Silver Coin Series are extensively sought after by bullion investors worldwide.
