The glittering snowflakes dancing in the wind, spectacular images on frozen window panes and the shine of icicles – reflections of all this are forever masterfully captured in the silver egg decorated with gemstones which hides another treasure made by Czech Mint – a silver proof NZD 2 coin with the motif of Gustav Fabergé, an outstanding master-jeweller who was born 200 years ago. The spectacular series is dedicated to him, because egg-shaped jewels made the surname Fabergé famous all over the world.
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. Its beauty and permanent value will certainly please every fan of exceptional quality and luxury!
