Pobjoy Mint is thrilled to announce the release of a phenomenal three coin set on behalf of Sierra Leone to commemorate the Centenary of the discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb.
Howard Carter and his workmen discovered a step leading to the tomb of King Tutankhamun in the Valley of the Kings in Egypt on November 4, 1922. His discovery spurred renewed interest in Ancient Egypt and the marvels of Luxor. Tut-mania took over the world and ‘Howard Carter’ and ‘Tutankhamun’ remain household names to this day. The coins in this fascinating series depict some of the most splendid treasures extracted from Tutankhamun’s tomb and some important symbols of Ancient Egypt.
