ABC Bullion brings ancient treasures to Australia

Independent bullion dealer ABC Bullion, part of the Pallion group of companies, has been appointed Presenting Partner for the Australian leg of the exhibition ‘Tutankhamun: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh’.

The six-month exhibition is part of a 10-city world tour to mark the centenary of the discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb by British archaeologist Howard Carter.

‘Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh’ includes 150 objects from the New Kingdom ruler’s gravesite, of which 60 have never left Egypt until now.

The recently renovated Australian Museum, in Sydney, will host the event in partnership with ABC Bullion, entertainment company IMG, Destination NSW and the Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities. It is scheduled for 2021.

Andrew Cochineas, CEO Pallion, said, “We are thrilled to be Presenting Partner of the ’Tutankhamun: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh’ exhibition and to provide Australians with access to the golden wonders of ancient Egypt. Only nine other cities in the world will have this once in a lifetime honour.

“People from all over the world are expected to attend the exhibition’s exclusive South East Asia engagement, as the first blockbuster exhibition to be held in the Australian Museum after its $57.5 million refurbishment and expansion.”

Christopher Gilbert, IMG senior vice president and managing director Australia & New Zealand, added, “We are thrilled to have ABC Bullion’s support for this monumental event, and we look forward to bringing King Tut’s treasures to Australia.”

The exhibition will feature advanced displays and scientific investigations into the young pharaoh’s life, death and dynasty. It will also include a brand new detailed display dedicated to gold, presented by ABC Bullion.

“Australia is the second-largest gold producer in the world. This exhibition shows that gold has always been an important part of world civilisation. It was in ancient Egypt and it is today in modern Australia.

“And with gold prices and demand at record highs, it seems that the lustre of gold shows no signs of decline,” Cochineas said.

The Sydney leg of the exhibition follows record-breaking runs in Paris and Los Angeles.
