This issue marks the 150th anniversary of the birth of Finnish sculptor and artist, Henrik Wigström.

Having left Finland to become an apprentice in St Petersburg at the age of just 13, Henrik Wigström (1862-1923) was Fabergé's head workmaster for 15 years until the Russian revolution forced the shutting down of its workshops.

The obverse depicts an unfinished "Coronation" Easter egg and an engraver's tool. This egg was a gift from Tzar Nicholas II to his consort Empress Aleksandra Feodorovna in 1897.

The reverse shows a swan, in homage to another example of Wigström's exquisite workmanship, the "Swan" Easter egg. The surprise within this egg is a swan made of platinum, gold and precious stones, swimming on a lake of aquamarine.
