The Ancient Egyptian goddess of war makes an appearance in the Egyptian Gods Series as the sixth deity to grace the silver rounds of this collection. Struck in ultra-high relief on both BU and antique blanks, Sekhmet Rounds continue the impressive collection of 2 oz silver in the Egyptian Gods Series. Today, you have the chance to get near-perfect 2 oz Silver Antique Egyptian Gods Sekhmet Rounds online from Provident Metals.
The name Sekhmet translates to English as she who is powerful. While Sekhmet was referred to primarily as the goddess of war, she was worshipped for many different reasons and often considered to be the goddess of the hot sun, plague, chaos, and even healing. It is said that Ra created Sekhmet solely to be used as a weapon to destroy humans for disobeying him.
On the obverse of 2 oz Silver Antique Egyptian Gods Sekhmet Rounds is a depiction of the goddess. Shown in left-profile relief, she is captured here in a human form with the body of a woman and the head of a lioness. She is seated near a fire with one hand behind her back clutching a bloodied blade. The Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs used to reference here in Egyptian writing are found on this face of the silver round.
The reverse side of the 2 oz Silver Antique Egyptian Gods Sekhmet Rounds depicts a gentler-looking vision of Sekhmet. Like many other Egyptian deities, she was captured in artwork and hieroglyphs both in human and animal form. On this side of the round, she is shown as a cat seated upon an altar in front of a pyramid. The inscriptions at the bottom include 2 OZ, 999, and AG.
Sekhmet seemingly had a dual-personality ability in Ancient Egyptian mythology. As Sekhmet, the female goddess with the head of a lioness, she was ruthless and deadly. She would lead the armies of Egypt in warfare and serve as a protector of the pharaohs. In a calmer state, however, she would appear as a domesticated house cat that was often named Bastet. In this state, she could help friends avoid the plague and cure disease.
2 oz Silver Antique Egyptian Gods Series Sekhmet Rounds in this listing are near-perfect specimens. Mint State 69 rounds have full, original mint luster and no more than two minor flaws. Those flaws must be located outside the primary focal points of the round and are limited in nature to minuscule contact marks or hairlines.
