This lovely .925 Silver egg-shaped coin is the sixth coin of this collection. On the egg, four rosy Swarovski® crystals glisten on the stylized image of the original "Bay Tree Egg". The obverse features "The Spring Flowers Egg" as well as a small image of the queen which appears to be floating above the egg in detailed bordering.
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’ which opens to reveal its first surprise, a matte yellow Gold yolk. This in turn opens to reveal a multi-coloured Gold hen which also opens. It contained 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 her aunt, which she cherished in her childhood memories. Since then, there have been a number of Faberge Eggs made as gifts for Imperials. Each coin comes encapsulated and with a Certificate of Authenticity from the Mint of Poland.
