Egyptian Calendar Colorized 2oz MS 70 Silver Coin
One of the first calendars mankind ever used was a product of ancient Egyptian scientists. Much like today’s calendars, it was divided into 12 months, the difference being that instead of four seasons, just three seasons were recognized: Flood (Akhet), Growth (Peret), and Low Water (Shemu), with the year starting in September by today’s modern standards. Despite the age of Pharaohs having long since passed, this ancient calendar is still very much in use today by Egyptian farmers to calculate the agricultural seasons and plan for local festivals that date back to ancient times.
Just 700 of these impressive coins have been struck for worldwide release, a sum more in line with a discovery of a hoard of ancient coins rather than a modern-release from a major mint!
