CIT is very proud to release the 2nd edition of a coin honoring a very famous work of art! Fabergé Eggs are known as priceless treasures that were specifically made for Royalty and some of the wealthiest families in the world. Last year for the 100th anniversary of Peter Carl Fabergé’s passing, we brought out the first Fabergé Egg which sold out very quickly.
This time the coin is dedicated to the famous Rose Trellis Egg which was created in Saint Petersburg under the supervision of Peter Carl Fabergé. Much of the work was done by his workmaster Henrik Wigström in 1907. The Rose Trellis Egg was a gift from Tsar Nicholas II to his wife, Alexandra Fedorovna commemorating the birth of their son. Each of Fabergé’s Imperial eggs contained a surprise, to delight the tsarevich. This particular egg hid a diamond necklace and an ivory miniature portrait of Alexandra Fedorovna framed in diamonds — unfortunately, these items are now lost to history.
