2020 2 oz Mongolia Peter Carl Fabergé - 100th Anniversary Proof Silver Coin
A coin honoring a very famous work of art: The Fabergé Eggs are known as priceless treasures. They were styled after the shape of Easter eggs and specifically made for Royalty and some of the wealthiest families in the world. 2020 marks the 100th Anniversary of the passing of Peter Carl Fabergé, a Russian jeweler that is best known for creating the famous Fabergé Eggs.
One of his most famous works resides in the Liechtenstein Museum and is known as the Apple Blossom Egg. It was made for a very wealthy Russian industrialist named Alexander Kelch as a gift for his wife in 1901. It is one of the largest Fabergé Eggs and it is rare that it sits on its side instead of upright. It is made out of stunning green jade, gold, silver, enamel, and precious diamonds.
Thanks to its world leading colorization techniques and combined with its smartminting© high relief technique, CIT was able to produce a coin worthy of this cultural icon. This two ounce silver proof is also selectively gilded to capture the intricate Apple Trees that are made out of gold on the original Fabergé Egg. This issue is limited to only 888 pieces worldwide and will be presented in a custom presentation case that is in the shape of an egg.
