The obverse features the ram-headed Egyptian god, Khnum, who was associated with the Nile River and procreation. It was believed that he sculpted humankind from clay on a potter’s wheel. Here, Khnum is seen carving out the figure of a man, with an assortment of pottery and tools on display in the background.
An iconic pyramid stands on the reverse before a wall filled with hieroglyphs. In front of the structure rests a table decorated with columns. A ram perches atop the table, an earthly representation of Khnum. Inscriptions include “2 oz,” “999,” and “Ag.”
Khnum is the fourth release in the popular limited edition Egyptian Gods series of 2 oz ultra high relief silver rounds, following Cleopatra, Anubis, and Sobek. Each round in this series showcases a detailed sculpt of the featured god or goddess on the obverse, along with a pyramid and thematic devices on the reverse.
Known as the god of the Nile, Khnum is one of the oldest Egyptian gods. His name means “builder,” which ties into his role as a creator. Khnum was believed to have molded humankind on a potter’s wheel using mud found along the shore of the Nile. Khnum is depicted as a ram-headed man who is often seen carrying a scepter.
Individual Khnum rounds will ship in new condition in plastic flips. Quantities of 10 will ship in plastic tubes. Add a 2 oz High Relief Plastic Capsule to your order for more protection.

" The pictures on the site do not do the coin justice, it's amazingly gorgeous. It is my first non eagle/maple coin and it did not disappoint. I am buying another one and grabbing some 2oz holders as well."

" The Egyptian Gods series designed by Heidi Wastweet is awesome (all her work is awesome). Khunm, et al. are truly exciting pieces of silverwork to behold in every respect. Great and detailed workmanship by Sunshine Minting too. I can't wait to see which Egyptian God will be featured next time."
