You will hardly meet a more talented artist than nature. The season of spring has always inspired painters, sculptors, writers and musicians, as well as jewellers. On the occasion of the 200th anniversary of birth of master jeweller Gustav Fabergé, Czech Mint decided to present to all art lovers a jewel which may have been modelled by the goddess of spring Vesna. An egg decorated with a myriad of spring flowers made of gold and gemstones hides another treasure inside– a one-ounce pure gold coin dedicated to Gustav Fabergé.
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 for all art lovers to invest in art. Its beauty and permanent value will certainly please every fan of exceptional quality and luxury!
