Three different Eggs in Cloisonné: These unique coins have been created by using enamel technique combined with delicate patterns and inserted crystals. They are handcrafted works of art in the world of coins.
The Cloisonné-Eggs are inspired by the famous Fabergé-Eggs. The Russian tsar Alexander III commissioned the first Fabergé-Egg for his wife in 1885. She was so delighted, that from then on he gave his beloved a magnificent egg as a gift every Easter. After his death his son Nikolaus II continued the tradition and, up until the collapse of his reign in 1917, commissioned another 40 eggs. These works of art each came up with a surprise. Several miniatures such as eggs, trains or bouquets were embedded in them.
In total, 50 splendid eggs were made which are privately owned or displayed in museums today.
- Enamel technique, inserted crystals
- Low mintage - limited to only 2,500 pieces
- Comes with capsule and the certificate of authenticity (was released without box)
