Product Description

Mintage of only 7,000!
This lovely Sterling Silver egg-shaped coin weighs 1.68 oz and features "The Clover Leaf Egg." On the egg, two green glass and zircon clovers glisten with a background of intricate clover design. The obverse features "The Spring Flowers Egg" as well as a small profile of the queen that appears to be floating above the egg in detailed bordering. This coin comes to you in original capsule and a Certificate of Authenticity from the Mint of Poland.

This coin's reverse is based on the "Clover Leaf Egg" that is made of an open pattern of stems and leaves of clover forming the shape of an egg. The actual egg features transparent bright green enamel within the outline of the clover leaves, and very thin golden ribbons, paved with rubies, curl through the foliage.

The tradition of the Faberge egg began in 1885, when Tsar Alexander III gifted one to his wife, the Empress Maria Fedorovna. That egg was known as the "Hen Egg." It was crafted from Gold and featured an opaque white enameled shell that opens to reveal its first surprise, a matte yellow Gold yolk. This in turn opens to reveal a multicolor Gold hen, which also opens. It contains a minute diamond replica of the Imperial Crown from which a small ruby pendant was suspended. The idea came about from an egg decor piece owned by the empress's aunt, which she cherished from her childhood memories. Since then, there have been a number of Faberge eggs made as gifts for Imperials.
