A worldwide sensation

It is now 100 years since archaeologist Howard Carter discovered Tutankhamun’s 3,500-year-old tomb in virtually untouched condition. The young pharaoh and the spectacular treasures he was buried with became a worldwide sensation which to this day remain sources of intense fascination. Probably no other artefact epitomizes King Tut in the public imagination as his solid gold death mask.

Iconic death mask design

The coin’s portrayal of Tutankhamun’s iconic death mask is rendered from an official photograph. The image, which features applications of colour representing its famous glass paste inlays, is surrounded by the inscription ‘TUTANKHAMUN 100 YEARS’, hieroglyphs, a cartouche, and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.
