PCGS - Recently, two rare Egyptian pattern coins were certified by PCGS. These two unadopted pattern designs each have about five known examples and point to a popular and historical time during both Egyptian and world history.
The first coin, dated AH1375 and 1956 AD, is denominated 25 piastres. The pattern was a proposal to commemorate Gamal Abdul Nasser's presidential election win, elevating him to President of Egypt. The coin designed by Abdul Fattah Wahba and calligrapher Muhammad Abdul Kader is made of silver, measures 35 millimeters, and weighs 17.50 grams. Listed as HM-112 in the Encyclopedia & Catalogue of Egyptian Money - The Egyptian Coins by Eng. Magdy Hanafy, the coin is graded SP63 by PCGS.
