Eye of Horus
The Eye of Horus is an ancient Egyptian symbol of protection, royal power and good health. The eye is personified in the goddess Wadjet (also written as Wedjat, or Udjat, Uadjet, Wedjoyet, Edjo or Uto). The Eye of Horus is similar to the Eye of Ra, which belongs to a different god, Ra, but represents many of the same concepts. The name Wadjet is derived from “wadj” meaning “green”, hence “the green one”, and was known to the Greeks and Romans as “uraeus” from the Egyptian “iaret” meaning “risen one” from the image of a cobra rising up in protection. Wadjet was one of the earliest of Egyptian deities who later became associated with other goddesses such as Bast, Sekhmet, Mut, and Hathor. She was the tutelary deity of Lower Egypt and the major Delta shrine the “per-nu” was under her protection. Hathor is also depicted with this eye.
The reverse of the coin presents an intricate design behinf the famous Eye of Horus, guarded by two wonderful coloured Egyptian cats. The Eye is placed at the center of the wonderful black Goldstone, also called “Night in Cairo”. The obverse of the coin an intricate design and depicts the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the inscriptions: “NIUE” – the issuing country, “2018” – the year of issue, “2 DOLLARS” – the face value and “ELIZABETH II” – the name of the Queen.
