Coin Information:

In 1922, British Egyptologist Howard Carter dared to explore a neglected stairway within the Valley of the Kings, leading to Tutankhamun’s tomb. 100 years later, The Royal Mint issued a £5 to commemorate the centenary of its discovery. The reverse design shows a portrait of Tutankhamun’s iconic gold mask, while the obverse features Jody Clark’s portrait of Queen Elizabeth II.
