A richly decorated jewel in the shape of an egg adorned with fine romantic motives symbolizing the charm of winter is a first-class show of great jeweller art. And it is also a numismatic delicacy because the unique jewel also serves as a luxurious case for gold one-ounce coin denominated NZD 50 dedicated by Czech Mint to master jeweller Gustav Fabergé. This great craftsman and artist was born 200 years ago and the jeweller’s shop bearing his same name became a generally recognized symbol of luxury and wealth. He fully deserves the exceptional attention paid to him by the series issued by Czech Mint.
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 offer for all art lovers to invest in art.
