2 oz Republic of Chad Horus Silver Coin (2016)
Scottsdale Mint used their high-quality minting techniques and rimless design, on a remarkable 4.75 mm thick coin, to replicate a hand-carved Egyptian relic. Horus is one of the most significant ancient Egyptian deities. He was worshiped from at least the late prehistoric Egypt until the Ptolemaic Kingdom and Roman Egypt. This 2 oz Silver coin is the 2nd and final release for the 2016 Egyptian Relic series and features a hand-brushed Antique Proof finish and chiseled granite edge to bring Horus to life. The coin has a distinct incuse design and a rough finish, giving it the appearance of an ancient coin in use for thousands of years.
