I bought the copper 50g version for £41,90 that's all I could afford. Great coin.

It is a nice coin, but way beyond me. I'm also a bit iffy about the portraits. Akhenaten looks about right, but Thutmose doesn't look much like the statues of him and, if I was Sobekneferu I'd throw the artist to the crocodiles. (Mind you, her statue is non too flattering either, but at least it doesn't look like a disgruntled PA) It's also a bit ironic that the other side of the coin shows the Pyramids at Giza, despite none of the pharaohs shown being buried in a pyramid there.

How badly do copper coins tarnish compared to silver coins?

Can this be minimised by using good quality air tight coin capsules?

This coin does have a wonderful capsule, maybe why eh.

TCM I love your knowledge, I agree the Lady Pharaoh doesn't look like someone I would like to marry.

Especially not now eh @denby . She'd be a bit too tough even for Hamish to nibble.

Guys
I bought the coin because it was only $161.00 and liked that female of the pharaohs looked like an ex girlfriend Smile .
