This is a commemorative Revolution issue, not issued for circulation but in a denomination of 100 Piastres or 1 Pound Egyptian. Issued on the 3rd Anniversary of the 1952 Revolution, the 1957 issue celebrates the 5th year. The obverse features an ancient Egyptian war chariot with Pharaoh Ramses II shooting a bow. Lettering:
ثورة
٢٣ يوليه ١٩٥٢
Translation: Revolution July 23 of 1952
Reverse: Vulture wings and cobra heads (symbols of Ancient Egypt) flanking the disk of the sun (God Amun Ra) Lettering:
جمهورية مصر
جينه
واحد
١٣٧٤ - ١٩٥٥
Translation:
Republic of Egypt
One Pound
1955 - 1374
These iconic issues were first struck in 1955 and again in 1957. This 1955 issue had 16,000 struck and it's a very desirable coin. It was struck in yellow and red gold. I've never seen one that looked reddish, and at 10k struck, the 1957 is less seldom seen.
