Thanks to you, our Egyptian Gods series of 2 oz ultra high relief silver rounds has grown quite popular since the release of Cleopatra in 2015. She was followed with the release of Anubis and Sobek, and most recently, Khnum.
With Khnum now available, we have stopped production on Sobek in order to honor our promise of a limited mintage series. This ensures that the series maintains its collectors’ value, which is reflected in the secondary market since Cleopatra and Anubis rounds are selling for $80+ each.
Once the remaining inventory of Sobek rounds sells, they will no longer be available in new condition. During the run of the crocodile god Sobek, we produced 12,500 rounds and we currently have just over 2,000 remaining. So if you’d like to add Sobek to your collection, we recommend you act soon before supplies permanently run out.
Who is Sobek? In case you’re late to this series, Sobek is known as “Lord of the Waters” and represented strength, power, and fertility in ancient Egypt. He was a chaotic god, yet was also believed to be a force of creation.
Along with Sobek, Egyptians worshipped actual crocodiles as the earthly embodiments of the god. In fact, mummified crocodiles have been discovered in ancient tombs, likely put there to protect human remains.
Each round in the Egyptian Gods series is designed to tell the story of the featured god or goddess. It’s a trait that has been continued with Khnum, which shows the ram-headed god sculpting mankind from clay found on the shores of the Nile River.
Which of these four designs has been your favorite so far? Let us know in the comments section below, and then grab your Sobek round while supplies last!
Please do Isis (the goddess, not the terrorists)! Make her beautiful please!

Why is the Anubis reverse different ( upside down if you will ) compared to the rest of the series so far?
Also, why is the Anubis in what looks like a matte/frosted version compared to the rest? Nice round, but doesn’t match the previous three.
Love the rounds so far but you’ve only made 1 (ONE) Goddess. What’s up with that!?!?!?
Don’t worry, Al. We’re working on more!

Can you give us a count of the Egyptian gods for example there will be 10 Queens beasts. I would like 10 Egyptian gods that would be awesome
Unfortunately, we do not have an answer to that question yet. As of now, the series will continue indefinitely, so long as demand remains strong.

If there is a market for the first two issues of the series at $80+ like the article says, I’d be more than happy to sell the ones I own. Nice rounds, but I’m all about making money, turning a profit and moving to the next opportunity. Feel free to let me know all about these buyers.
We encourage you to check out eBay and other secondary market options.

I checked in to it, Cleopatra buy it now is just under 55.00 free shipping on Ebay. Anubis is harder to find. 75.00 for the cheapest on ebay. I will grant you the 80 dollar estimate for Anubis, but definately not for Cleopatra. It was on the primary market for years. I was about start selling too.

Love the whole series so far. Hell, I love every series you release. Horseman, Zombucks, God’s, etc. They’re all fabulous! No complaints at all. Should have a roll of Sobeks waitin for me when I get home today.
Wow, thanks for sharing! Glad you enjoy the rounds we produce!
The Anubis coin was cool. Cleopatra looked European instead of African so that was a major disappointment.
Maybe the next rounds in the series will appeal to you more.

I must have missed the final mintages on Cleopatra, and Anubis. What were those?
The final mintage for Cleopatra was 38,767 and Anubis was 16,142.
