A new addition to the Mennica Polska’s Ancient Egyptian themed range is a look at the iconic Eye of Horus and the fabled cats that were so prominent in that society. A coloured coin of two standard ounces in weight, it also featues a goldstone window the mint is calling “Night in Cairo”. Issued for Niue, the mintage of this 50mm diameter coin is set at 999 and it comes supplied in one of the excellent floating latex skin frames for easy display. Available now, it sells for around the €150 mark.
