Fuad I (1868–1936) was the sultan and later king of Egypt and Sudan, sovereign of Nubia, Kordofan, and Darfur. The ninth ruler of Egypt and Sudan from the Muhammad Ali dynasty, he became sultan in 1917, succeeding his elder brother Hussein Kamel. He substituted the title of king for sultan when the United Kingdom recognised Egyptian independence in 1922.
Perhaps more appropriately deemed a die trial for the golden 500 Qirsh (KM# 342) than a pattern, as the design appears identical to the standard issue. Apparently cancelled at the mint, with a large cut through the planchet that runs from the rim just to the right of Faud's nose.
