This silver coin represents the Sculptures of Art series issued by Solomon Islands. Struck of 3 oz .999 pure silver, the Nefertiti coin combines selective gold-plating and colorization with matt finish, sand-blasting and partial chrome-proof finish. It pays tribute to Nefertiti, one of the most recognizable icons of ancient Egypt, the wife of Pharaoh Akhenaten who reigned during the 14th century B.C.
The obverse bears the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The portrait is surrounded by the following inscriptions: the Queen’s name, the face value of the coin, its weight, metal fineness, issuing country and year.
The whole reverse of the coin is a small replica of the legendary bust of beautiful Nefertiti with her graceful neck, chiseled cheekbones and a long aristocratic nose. Not only was she amazingly gorgeous, but also proved to be one of the most powerful women to have ever ruled. Standing for “The beautiful one has arrived”, the name Nefertiti and her famous 3,300-year-old bust are among the most iconic symbols of Egypt. The silver coin has got the extremely limited mintage of only 1 000 pieces worldwide. It is displayed on a luxury pedestal and housed in an acryl presentation box to reveal the beauty of the coin.
