About Cat Goddess Bastet Silver Round
These Cat Goddess Bastet rounds receive careful treatment that makes them look antique. These rounds are hand struck, which means that no two coins are the same. A great way of having a unique round for yourself.
The design of this round presents an image of Bastet, an ancient Egyptian goddess of the Second Dynasty. Worshipped in Bubastis, in lower Egypt, Bastet was originally a lioness goddess. She then took the form of a cat, leaving Sekhmet the lion form. This was because she represented gentler aspects of life, such as protection, fertility, and the arts. However, she never disposed of her warrior character.
Even though the meaning of Bastet’s name remains unclear, some Egyptologists claim that it meant something similar to “She of the ointment jar”. This belief is because her name carried the hieroglyphic that referred to the object. Bastet’s protection was not only against enemies of war, but also contagious diseases and evil spirits. Apart from being sacred, the protective instinct of a cat was, without doubt, the best animal to depict what she represented.

The obverse shows the image of Bastet in her cat shape. Facing left with ornamental decorations that proved her sacred, her expression is that of a caring mother. However, the uptight position and pin-point ears are enough evidence to tell that she kept alert. Always protecting her people from evil. Purity and weight are on each side and the background presents ancient hieroglyphics.
On the reverse, there is an image of the human form of Bastet. The solar disc above her head gives us an idea of a close relation to Sun god Ra. Some researchers say that she was his daughter. An ankh, or key of life to her left, and ancient hieroglyphs that relate to her also decorate this side of the coin.
