Both Akhenaten (Amenhotep IV), and Nefertiti, were clearly a close couple, confident enough to steer the whole Egyptian empire, already many centuries old, in a new direction, changing that most fundamental of things, religion, They’re depicted on T&S Coin’s latest issue in a touching embrace, resplendent in full headgear and other adornments, all picked out with gilding. The setting looks like a tent, or temple room, looking out over the Giza plateau. While the figures are a little too modern, perhaps, the scene is a nice change from the usual, and beautifully realised in silver.
The obverse continues the producer’s use of a common obverse across all their issues, and it remains an attractive design. This coin is issued for Cameroon, so that nation’s coat-of-arms sits in the central area, rather than the Public Seal of Niue on most others. The coin will come boxed with a Certificate of Authenticity, of course, and the mintage is set at the typical 500 pieces.
