A charming egg-shaped jewel featuring a harmonious combination of autumn colours is another gift from Czech Mint to all art lovers. The beautifully crafted case made of silver and precious stones hides another surprise inside – a unique silver proof coin denominated NZD 2 with the portrait of Gustav Fabergé, founder of the famous jeweller’s shop, whose 200th anniversary of birth we commemorate this year. To this icon of jewellers Czech Mint has dedicated a series of coins placed in spectacular richly decorated cases in the shape of an egg – the shape that made the Fabergé workshop so famous.
All eggs serving as luxurious cases for coins included in Czech Mint’s series “Gustav Fabergé“ were created by talented goldsmith Alexandr Belov; they are distinguished from each other by an original motif. The reverse of the gold NZD 50 coin was designed by outstanding medal maker Asamat Baltaev, it features the portrait of the icon of jewellers Gustav Fabergé, the year of his birth (1814), the year of issue (2014) and his name. The obverse created by the same artist shows a miniature of the egg-shaped jewel, the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II, denomination of the coin NZD 50, and the name of the issuer – Niue Island. Gold one-ounce coins packaged in luxurious cases are numbered on the edge and delivered with a velvet folder containing a certificate of origin on a handmade paper and a lithograph with the portrait of Gustav Fabergé. The egg-shaped jewel hiding a gold one-ounce NZD 50 coin is an appealing invitation to invest in art. Its beauty and permanent value will certainly please every fan of exceptional quality and luxury!
