DESCRIPTION
 
0.5oz AG Round - Ancient Egyptian Coin / BOY KING TUT (fake, but kool)...COATED
This half ounce coin of the BOY KING TUT is a replica of an ancient Egyptian coin depicting a typical example of the varied coinage of the day. The whimsical BOY KING would often say "Make a coin with my likeness on it." and get his left side on Monday. On Friday he would again say "Make a coin with my likeness on it." and get his right side. The result was that many coins were made by the command of the BOY KING TUT which bore his image.
Note: Unlike modern coins they struck very precisely and to very stringent specifications, these ancient coins seem haphazardly stamped and often miss center. It would be interesting to trace the history of such a piece. This would be a fun coin with which to journey back in time.
