2020 100th Anniversary of Fabergé

CIT Coin Invest issues a commemorative coin on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the death of Peter Carl Fabergé featuring one of his most famous works, the apple blossom egg, which is kept in the Treasure Chamber of the Liechtenstein National Museum. It is probably the biggest Fabergé egg and was created on behalf of Fabergé’s patron Alexander Kelch in 1901. The jade egg was used as a jewellery box and is ornamented with blooming apple tree branches made of gold, enamel and diamonds, which is the reason for its name.

CIT Coin Invest applied numerous state-of-the-art minting techniques to depict the apple blossom egg perfectly true to the original. Thanks to smartminting© technology, the egg arises three-dimensionally from the proof like surface. Branches and blossoms were designed with great love for detail. Delicate colouring imitates the original work’s enamelled apple blossoms. It is especially demanding to apply the partial gilding that makes the branches shine with gold lustre like the original piece of art.

Reverse

The reverse depicts the apple blossom egg by Peter Carl Fabergé in high relief; the background partly imitates the egg’s pattern, in the upper field 1846-1920 / Peter Carl Fabergé, in the field below 2020 / 100th Anniversary.

The obverse features the coat of arms of the Bank of Mongolia, below in Cyrillic script 1000 Togrog, in the exergue in Latin script MONGOLIA 2 oz .999 SILVER
