Sometimes finding outstanding coins among the myriad of yearly releases can be a daunting process. Not so with CIT’s new high-end «Scarab Selection». The set of three coins, each featuring a unique, high-relief scarab beetle presents a sublime selection of masterfully minted coins that any collector with a distinguished taste will immediately appreciate.

Spearheading the selection is «Black Kingdom» which displays a gleaming gilded scarab on a black proof mirror surface. «Red Dawn» showcases a black-rhodium plated ancient Eqyptian scarab on a rose-gold canvas holding up the rising sun in the shape of a SWAROVSKI® crystal. Winding up the set is «Desert Heat», a completely gilded coin representing the flaming sun.

All coins are struck with smartminting© technology, dispalying the beetles in exquisitve detail and realism. The first «Scarab Selection», presented in a noble collector’s case, is limited to 499 extraordinary sets.

The mythical designs of the coins date back thousands of years. Scarab beetles have variously symbolized good fortune, life and rebirth, they were worn as protective amulets or presented as charms and religious gifts.
