Mintage of only 2,000 coins!
This beautiful silver proof coin is the first in a new series and is dedicated to Amber Room. The fabled Amber Room is also known as the Amber Chamber in the Catherine Palace of Tsarskoye Selo near Saint Petersburg. The jewel-encrusted Amber Room, which was made of several tons of the gemstone, was a gift to Peter the Great in 1716 celebrating peace between Russia and Prussia. During World War II, the amber panels were packed away in crates and disappeared. A replica was completed in 2003, but the original, dubbed "the Eighth Wonder of the World" has remained missing for decades. The coin features the splendid Amber Room of Saint Petersburg in Russia and a real piece of amber embedded. The obverse has the likeness of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The coin comes in a stylish case and with a certificate of authenticity.
