Scarab Coin Collection

The Scarab Coin Collection is a bit different from many other coin collections or series. Released in trios of coins, all 9 of the coins in this collection were released in 2017. Until a new, very different addition was released in 2021.

Each depicting an Egyptian scarab beetle, the mythical designs of these coins date back thousands of years. Scarab beetles have variously symbolized good fortune, life and rebirth, in ancient Egypt they were worn as protective amulets or presented as charms and religious gifts.

A one ounce silver scarab shaped coin represents an Egyptian symbol of immortality and resurrection. Even though we might question a civilization that considers a dung beetle a symbol of wealth and class, this silver scarab coin shines a new light on the worth of a dung beetle!

This symbolic coin combines the symbol of a scarab beetle with one of the most famous Pharaohs to ever live, Tutankhamun. His tomb opening celebrates its 100th anniversary in 2022.

In ancient Egyptian religion, the god Ra whose eye is also depicted on the obverse together with the Ankh or Key of Life, rolls the sun across the sky each day, transforming bodies and souls.

Scarab beetles roll dung into a ball. Because of this symbolically similar action, the scarab was seen as a reflection of the heavenly cycle and was representing the idea of rebirth or regeneration. In ancient Egyptian religion, the scarab was also a symbol of immortality, resurrection, transformation and protection much used in funerary art.

Over the ages, scarabs have been used to symbolize wealth, as currency, fashion accessory and also to serve as a form of artistic expression.
