Louvre Museum French Excellence 1 Kilo Gold Coin

R 3,500,000.00

Discover an unparalleled masterpiece in numismatic artistry with the exclusive 1 kg gold coin, a celebration of a remarkable alliance and a testament to the wonders of ancient Egypt. Minted in a limited edition of just 14 copies, this coin is a hand-engraved homage to the Louvre’s breath-taking collection of Egyptian antiquities. The obverse features the majestic Sphinx of Tanis, an emblem of the Old Kingdom’s craftsmanship, alongside the moon God Khonsu and the Divine Worshipper Shepenupet, rendered with exquisite detail and contrasted by the minimalist elegance of line drawing in the background.

The reverse side is graced by Amun, the supreme deity of the Egyptian pantheon, depicted as the guardian of the young Pharaoh Tutankhamun. This central motif is encircled by hieroglyphs from a golden crusted bronze case belonging to Shepenupet, enhanced by the protective allure of the blue “grand feu” enamel Eye of Horus. Each coin is presented in a specially designed window lid case, offering a unique opportunity to showcase this magnificent tribute to Egyptian heritage.

Crafted under the discerning eye of Joaquin Jimenez, General Engraver of Monnaie de Paris, this coin draws inspiration from the dual anniversaries significant to Egyptology—the 100th anniversary of the discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb and the 200th anniversary of the deciphering of hieroglyphs. Jimenez’s vision was further fuelled by the masterpieces housed within the Louvre’s department of Egyptian antiquities, making this coin not merely a collector’s item, but a bridge connecting the past and present, celebrating centuries of human achievement and the enduring legacy of Egypt’s ancient civilisations.
