Exquisite Pyramid of Khafre Design
The base of the pyramid features what would traditionally be considered the obverse. At the center if the coat of arms of Djibouti. It is encircled by several inscriptions, including the name of the issuing country, "REPUBLIQUE DE DJIBOUTI," the coin's face value, "250 FRANCS," the coin's purity, "AG 999," and its weight, "5 OZ." Below this area is an inscription of the date, "2021." The rest of this face is filled with Egyptian hieroglyphs.
The coin is 3D shaped in the form of the Pyramid of Khafre, the second largest of the Pyramids of Giza. The four faces besides the base each show one of the other popular sites of ancient Egypt. They include the man who built the pyramid, Pharaoh Khafre, the deity of the sun, Ra, the god of death, Anubis, and, of course, the Great Sphinx. The top of the pyramid is gilt, giving it a look distinct from the rest of the pyramid just like the actual Pyramid of Khafre.
