The mix of easily perceptible proportions and a harmonious layout with a colored agate insert make it a real catch for art lovers!
The coin presents the front part and lavishly decorated interior of the Catherine Palace, the main building of Tsarskoe Selo, Russia. It is decorated with a genuine agate insert. There is also the traditional effigy of her Majesty Elizabeth II, the Queen’s name, the face value of the coin, its issuing country and year.
The antique finish reverse features a piece of the Catherine Palace decorated with an agate insert. One of the most luxurious examples of Baroque in the world, the Palace owes its awesome grandeur to Catherine’s daughter, Empress Elizabeth, who chose Tsarskoe Selo as her chief summer residence. Starting in 1743, the building was reconstructed by four different architects, before Bartholomeo Rastrelli, was instructed to completely redesign the building on a scale to rival Versailles.The art coin comes housed in an elegant wooden presentation case; the mintage is limited – a mere 3 333 pieces worldwide.
