Coin Story

The Caucasus Egg is a jewelled enameled Easter egg made by Michael Perkhin under the supervision of the Russian jeweller Peter Carl Fabergé in 1893. The egg was made for Alexander III of Russia, who presented it to his wife, the Empress Maria Feodorovna. Currently the egg is a long term installation at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, New York, as part of the Matilda Geddings Gray Foundation.

Reverse Design

In the foreground you will see an image of the magnificent Caucasus Egg with colored and 24-carat gold plated elements. In the middle of the egg you see an image of the caucasus, just like on the original egg. The Egg offsets itself from the background, due to the applied gold and color.

Obverse Design

At the bottom – open „Spring Flowers Egg” (1899-1903) with a miniature basket and a bouquet of anemones. Above the basket – the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II with an inscription: ELIZABETH II and the mint mark (m/w). Around – a decorative, neo-rococo ornament. Along the rim – the issuer’s name: NIUE ISLAND, the face value: 1 DOLLARS, the hallmark (Ag 999) and the year of issue – 2015.

Packaging

The Imperial Fabergé Eggs - Caucasus Egg silver coin comes encapsulated, in a very special presentation case, with a Certificate of Authenticity.
