On the obverse of this silver Feberge coin, there is the image of the open Spring Flowers Egg with a miniature basket of wood anemones inside. The portrait of Queen Elizabeth II is surrounded by the florid ornament with the legends indicating the face value of the Niue coin, its issuing country and year.
The beautifully crafted reverse features the Rosebud Egg (1895), the first Faberge egg presented by Tsar Nicholas II to his bride Alexandra. Once opened, this strawberry red egg with a diamond Cupid's arrow reveals a yellow enameled rosebud, which blooms to disclose a ruby and diamond-set Imperial crown. Imperial Faberge Eggs got their name due to the fact that they were made for Alexander III and Nicholas II of Russia. The reverse image is embellished with two colored Swarovski crystals to fully express the finesse and magnificence of the original Rosebud Egg. The coin has been issued with the limited mintage of 9999 pieces worldwide, so don’t miss the opportunity to own the silver masterpiece by Niue!
