Ancient Egyptian Coins

Twenty years ago, many historians and scientists-archeologists were inclined to the same general opinion, which was that there were no bank notes in the territory of ancient Egypt, and trade-market relations took place through the exchange of some types of goods for others.

But, not so long ago, a small group of Egyptian archaeologists discovered a treasure with various coins from the period of the Pharaohs. Coins were found by archaeologists in the study of several thousand historical artifacts that were previously found, and are now kept in the fund of the Department of the State Historical Museum of Egypt. Quite interesting is the moment that the coins before this discovery were considered amulets or a kind of jewelry. First of all, this is due to the fact that the method of manufacture and the materials themselves for the coin were truly unique, and had not previously been encountered in any of the countries. The ancient Egyptians used as a raw material for the production of coins ivory, precious stones, gold and similar materials. Secondly, a hole was made in the coins of ancient Egypt, the function of which was not how archaeologists and other scientists were mistaken to wear jewelry around the neck, but to pay with bundles of such coins, and for the convenience of storing and carrying them. The third rather unusual factor is the fact that there were various inscriptions, prayers, symbols and spells on the coins, which was also misleading about these historically important finds.

Some time later, as a result of the research, it was established that the coins belong to different periods of the history of Ancient Egypt. There are on these peculiar banknotes and portraits of pharaohs and treasurers, some important historical events that took place in the history of the most ancient civilization are displayed. Later coins were made with amazing accuracy of their weight indicators, which were equal to 32 grams. As this was achieved, unfortunately, most likely will remain one of the great mysteries of mankind.

These coins are not only the most valuable copies of the entire world history, but also open up a completely new look at the uniqueness of the civilization of ancient Egypt. This is a completely new contribution to historical science, which, of course, will force scientists to reconsider their views on past events.
