About This Item

Lotus Compass

The inspiration for this coin comes from the glorious Middle- and New Kingdoms of Ancient Egypt.  Lotus buds and flowers (Nymphaea caerulea), symbols of creation & rebirth, are used to create a compass rose around the central disk of the sun.  The directions are represented in four forms of text: hieroglyphs, Gardnerian transliteration, English, and an approximation of how the word might be pronounced (based on the study of both Middle Egyptian and its still-extant descendant, Coptic).  South is at the top, as it was represented in Egyptian art (and, in fact, the Egyptian word for "south" also means "up").

On the reverse, the classic representation of Aten (the sun disk, represented in the way made very famous by the artisans of the Amarna period) is, of course, geocaching, as any self-respecting sun deity with eons of time on its many, many hands would probably be doing.
