Why does this Antiqued Colorized 2021 Ruby Scarabaeus 2 oz. Silver High Relief coin belong in your collection of precious metal treasures?
The ancient Egyptians held great reverence for the Scarabaeus (scarab beetle) for its association with Re, the god of the sun. The creature was a representation of rebirth and divinity, and was frequently carried or worn to attract good luck. This gorgeous antiqued coin accented with rubies is an homage the mysterious power of the Scarabaeus.
Beautifully Detailed Scarabaeus Design
Obverse: The effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is located on the obverse, framed by a beaded border. Inscriptions include "ELIZABETH II," "NIUE ISLAND," "5 DOLLARS," "2021" and "AG 999." The royal portrait was created in 1998 by award-winning British sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley.
Reverse: A Scarabaeus is depicted on the reverse, with its spectacular wings on full display. The creature's high relief design is dramatically enhanced with stunning shades of gold and crimson. The beetle is accompanied by three inset ruby stones, which symbolized happiness and restored vitality to the Egyptians.
