Description of obverse and reverse Obverse – bears a fine effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Ian Rank Broadley FRBS with the text reading "ELIZABETH II ISLE OF MAN 2009" with triskeles, which is the national emblem of the Isle of Man. Also featured on the obverse are the hieroglyphics that were found in the tomb which read "TUT", "ANKH" and "AMUN". Reverse - the central image is taken from a wall decoration from Tutankhamun’s tomb and depicts the Pharaoh in the centre with his cartouche being welcomed by Anubis – God of the Underworld and Hathor - Goddess of Love and Beauty (and also the Goddess who offered comfort to the newly dead) who is offering Tutankhamun the "key of life". Two baboons appear on either side representing the 12 hours. The sun disc appears at the top of the design and this is where the ancient sand from Tutankhamun’s tomb is encapsulated by a sheet of glass.
