Complete set of 36 medals, each measuring 45mm in diameter. Issued from 1976-1978.
In 1922, the beautiful treasures buried in the tomb of the Pharaoh Tutankhamen more than 3000 years ago were discovered. In November, 1976, at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., many of these treasures were on special display in a public exhibition --- the first in a series of exhibitions held in major art museums throughout the U.S., arranged through the courtesy of the Egyptian Museum, Egypt's national museum. This collection of 36 medals was issued in tribute to Egypt's ancient art heritage in connection with the public exhibition. Each of the 36 medals depicts one of the golden treasures created for the Pharaoh, and these works of art are among the most beautiful and most important of these treasures. The reverse bears the title of the work, together with the symbol of the Egyptian Museum.
