About This Item

Rosetta Stone geocoin

A beautiful coin representing the Rosetta Stone. The Rosetta Stone is an Ancient Egyptian artifact which was first dscovered in 1799. It was instrumental in advancing modern understanding of hieroglyphic writing. It has three translations of a single passage: two in Egyptian language scripts (hieroglyphic and Demotic) and one in classical Greek. It was created in 196 BC, and contributed greatly to the deciphering of the principles of hieroglyph writing in 1822 by the British scientist Thomas Young and the French scholar Jean-François Champollion. Comparative translation of the stone assisted in understanding many previously undecipherable examples of hieroglyphic writing. The stone has been on public display at The British Museum since 1802.
