Coin Story

The Trans-Siberian Railway Egg was an Easter gift from the last Tsar of Russia, Nicholas II, to his wife Tsarina Alexandra Fyodorovna. The inspiration for this coin made in 1900 was a spectacular event of building the Trans-Siberian Railway connecting the European part of Russia with Vladivostok. The interior of the egg reveals a miniature replica of a steam locomotive and five carriages. Not only is the whole train a charming piece of jewellery art, but also a mechanical working model wound up with a gold key. The Trans-Siberian Railway Egg is housed in one of the oldest Moscow museums – the Kremlin Armoury.

Along the upper rim of the coin – an inscription: TRANS-SIBERIAN. In the background of the upper part of the coin – a decorative surface stylized to look as a palace curtain.
