We are proud to offer a coin 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. 2020 marks the 100th Anniversary of the passing of Peter Carl Faberge, a Russian jeweler that is best known for creating the famous Faberge Eggs.
One of his most famous works resides in the Liechtenstein Museum and is known as the Apple Blossom Egg. This Faberge Egg was made for a very wealthy Russian industrialist named Alexander Kelch as a gift for his wife in 1901. It is one of the largest Faberge Eggs ever made and one of the few that sits on its side instead of upright. The Egg is made out of stunning green jade, gold, silver, enamel, and precious diamonds.
This stunning representation incorporates world class colorization techniques and combines them with smartminting© high relief to produce a coin worthy of this cultural icon. This two ounce silver proof is also selectively gilded to capture the intricate Apple Trees that are made out of gold on the original Faberge Egg. This proof issue is limited to only 888 pieces worldwide and will be presented in a custom egg shaped presentation case.
