Coin Story

The Napoleonic Egg was made for the Dowager Empress Maria Fyodorowna in 1912. The Tsarina of Russia served as honorary colonel for the six regiments depicted in watercolor, and her monogram decorates the back of each panel. The Egg was designed in order to commemorate the centenary of Russia’s victory over the armies of Napoleon and in particular the victory at Borodino in 1812. This piece of art celebrates past royal glories while appealing to Russian patriotism at a time when the Romanov dynasty once again faced the uncertainties of war.

Reverse Design

In the central part – the stylized image of the original "Napoleonic Egg ". At the top, along the edge - the name of the series in English: IMPERIAL FABERGÉ EGGS. At the bottom – a fragment of the six Russian regiments fighted against the army of Napoleon, depicted in pad printing.

Obverse Design

At the bottom – open Spring Flowers Egg (1899-1903) with a miniature basket of wood anemones inside. Above – the Niue Island’s Coat of Arms with the inscription “ELIZABETH II” and the mint’s mark (m/w) below. Around the Queen’s effigy – a decorative neorococo scroll ornament. At the top – the issuer’s name: NIUE ISLAND. On the right – a nominal value of the coin (2 dollars), on the left – the year of issue 2012.
