The first silver round released in the Egyptian Gods Series, the 2 oz Egyptian God Series Cleopatra Silver Round features the last pharaoh of Egypt during the Ptolemaic era. The Ptolemies were of Greek descent and ruled Egypt from the death of Alexander the Great in the Hellenistic Period to the conquering of the region by the Roman Empire.

Cleopatra was said to possess great beauty, and though most Ptolemaic rulers in Egypt refused to learn and speak Egyptian (using Greek as the official language instead), Cleopatra adopted Egyptian customs for her own use. She told the people that she was the incarnation of the goddess Isis, who was known as the ideal mother and wife figure.

On the obverse face of each 2 oz  Egyptian God Series Cleopatra Silver Round you’ll find the primary design of Cleopatra as she sits on a lounging chaise. Surrounding her image are countless ancient Egyptian symbols, including the cartouche of Cleopatra bearing her lineage name, the Eye of Horus, and a bowl of figs. It is believed that her servants smuggled in an asp snake in a bowl of figs, which she allowed to bite her and inject its poison as an act of suicide.

Cleopatra, (Greek: “Famous in Her Father”) in full Cleopatra VII Thea Philopator (“Cleopatra the Father-Loving Goddess”), (born 70/69 BCE—died August 30 BCE, Alexandria), Egyptian queen, famous in history and drama as the lover of Julius Caesar and later as the wife of Mark Antony. She became queen on the death of her father, Ptolemy XII, in 51 BCE and ruled successively with her two brothers Ptolemy XIII (51–47) and Ptolemy XIV (47–44) and her son Ptolemy XV Caesar (44–30). After the Roman armies of Octavian (the future emperor Augustus) defeated their combined forces, Antony and Cleopatra committed suicide, and Egypt fell under Roman domination. Cleopatra actively influenced Roman politics at a crucial period, and she came to represent, as did no other woman of antiquity, the prototype of the romantic femme fatale.
