“Trans-Siberian Railway Egg” is the first 3D coin ever struck in the innovative shape of a spacial egg. It was created to commemorate the centesimal anniversary of building the longest railroad of all times - the Trans-Siberian Railway connecting Moscow and Vladivostok. The coin was minted in seven ounces of silver 999 to reflect sheer extravagance and opulence of the tsarist court.
The Trans-Siberian Railway Egg was an Easter gift from the Tsar Nicholas II of Russia to his beloved wife Alexandra Feodorovna. This priceless masterpiece reveals a miniature replica of a steam locomotive and five carriages attached to it. Today, the original Trans-Siberian Railway Egg is housed in the Kremlin Armory Museum in Moscow.

Thanks to a specially created 6-element die, they succeeded in making the impeccable shape of the coin and adorning it with intricate relief images. Thanks to elaborate design and intricate decorations, this exclusive silver coin is a real masterpiece of monetary art. The coin is intended for the most demanding coin collectors who will undoubtedly appreciate its flawless finish and sophisticated design.
