This truly fabulous and innovative silver piece is the first coin to contain a miniature porcelain vase! The latter is a replica of an elaborately decorated mid-18th century Chinese porcelain vase made for emperor Qianlong. The coin is a 17,5 g silver 999 piece, issued with the limited mintage of only 999 coins worldwide.

The obverse of the coin traditionally bears the effigy of Her Majesty Elizabeth II surrounded by the following inscriptions: the Queen’s name, the face value of the coin, its metal fineness, issuing country and year.

The reverse features a fabulous porcelain insert – a fine and elaborate copy of the Qing Dynasty vase. The vase was auctioned by Bainbridges in Ruislip, west London, on Nov. 11, 2010 - it was bid to a record 83 million dollars. The elaborately decorated piece was put up for sale by a brother and sister who found it while clearing out their parents’ home in Pinner, north-west London after they recently died. The tiny detailed vase on the coin is a true work of art! Produced by Ćmielów Orcelain Manufactory, it preserved elegance, style and timeless design of an original vase. Founded in 1804, the factory specializes in high quality handmade porcelain. The coin comes housed in a specially designed packaging, accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.
