The predecessor coin ‘Vitruvian Man‘ has shown how fascinating the idea of mixing an ancient topic with the modern invention of the x-rays can be. With this edition we are going back in time even more. Howard Carter would have been happy if he could have x-rayed the sarcophagus of Tutankhamun. This cool looking coin makes it possible and combines some of the best of minting technology and colorization to create a one-of-a-kind piece. Discover the Mummy in ultra-high relief surrounded by Egyptian hieroglyphs on the reverse and its colorized x-ray image on the obverse. There will only be 999 of these amazing proofs struck. Get yours and be luckier than Howard Carter back then.
