The House of Fabergé, based in Saint Petersburg, Russian Empire, is responsible for the creation of the jeweled eggs known as "Fabergé eggs." There could have been as many as 69 made, but only 57 are still around today. Between 1885 and 1917, Peter Carl Fabergé oversaw the production of nearly all of them. Of the 52 "Imperial" eggs he created for Russian Tsars Alexander III and Nicholas II to give to their wives and mothers for Easter, 46 have survived to this day. Peter Carl Fabergé's Tsarevich Egg, a long-lost treasure that was recently unearthed, is honored in this series' fourth installment, a 2-ounce proof silver coin. The original is set with gold and diamonds in blue lapis lazuli. Tsar Nicholas II and Tsarina Alexandra Feodorovna's son, Alexei Nikolaevich, was seven years old when this portrait was created. After Alexei's miraculous recovery from severe illness in 1912, he gave the imperial egg to his mother as a gift. It is currently on view at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond, Virginia. Amazingly, the reverse of the coin depicts a beautiful blue Fabergé egg in High Relief. Coin's name, "Peter Carl Fabergé Tsarevich Egg," is inscribed at the top of the reverse. The Mongolian Coat of Arms is displayed on the obverse of the coin, along with the denomination ("1000 Togrog"), country ("Mongolia"), and weight and fineness of the metal ("2 oz.999 silver"). The coin is of proof quality and features attractive coloring and smart-minting technology. Authenticity Certificate and themed case for your coin. Only 888 will ever be produced.
