This beautiful  coin depicts the Revolving Miniatures, also known as the Rock Crystal egg. The egg was created for Empress Alexandra Feodorovna, by the commission of Tsar Nicholas II. The egg was the first of the Imperial eggs that was received by Nicholas II and not Alexander III. As such, it is the egg that is most associated with the coronation of the new Tsar. Although the actual meaning of the egg is far more romantic and personal. 

A Fabergé egg is a jeweled egg created by the jeweler firm House of Fabergé, in Saint Petersburg, Russian Empire. Possibly as many as 69 were created, of which 57 survive today. Virtually all were manufactured under the supervision of Peter Carl Fabergé between 1885 and 1917. The most famous are his 52 "Imperial" eggs, 46 of which survive, made for the Russian Tsars Alexander III and Nicholas II as Easter gifts for their wives and mothers
