Tut triangle; COINAGE.
The coin, representing a pyramid, is part of a series which depicts the artefacts unearthed in the young pharaoh's tomb in the Valley of the Kings by English archaeologist Howard Carter in 1922.
It features the coffinette which contained the boy king's mummified internal organs.
The Isle of Man government will issue the commemorative coins to coincide with the current Tutankhamun touring exhibition at the O2 Arena - which has returned to the city for the first time in 30 years.
