A series that debuted back in 2015 with the Amber Scarabaeus, the Mint of Poland’s Ancient Egyptian themed series has evolved by taking the same basic design – an Egyptian atyle beetle – and decorating it with different types of plating, colour and minerals. In all, it’s been quite an eclectic mix, and one we’ll probably do a Coin Series Profile on soon.
These remain 17.5 gram 0.999 silver coins, issued for Niue and with the obligatory effigy of Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse. This time around, the beetle and surrounding detail, is richly coloured in gold and emerald green. Taking pride of place is a half-sphere of green jasper – a mineral the Ancient Egyptians were well familiar with, using it for gold jewellery and other objects. Available now, the coin has a mintage of 500 pieces and comes in one of those neat latex skin frames with an incorporated Certificate of Authenticity.
