This is the 5th edition of a coin series honoring a very famous work of art. Faberge Eggs are known as priceless treasures that were specifically made for Royalty and some of the wealthiest families in the world.
This is the tale of the “Imperial Coronation Egg” and another remarkable masterpiece crafted by the gifted Peter Carl Faberge. In 1897, this Faberge marvel was presented as a gift to the last Russian Tsarina of the Romanov dynasty in homage to the resplendent golden robe she wore during her coronation. Crafted from a medley of multicoloured gold, adorned with dazzling diamonds, and graced with delicate Guilloche ornaments, this egg embodies the elegance of its time.
Today, this treasure, with a worth of approximately 18 million dollars, is in possession of Victor Vekselberg and is residing in the Museum of St. Petersburg, where the Imperial Coronation Egg captivates the hearts of all who visit.
But there is yet another exquisite secret concealed within the original – a detailed miniature replica of the coronation carriage.
This proof quality stunner is limited to only 888 pieces worldwide.
