This special 1 oz silver coin commemorates these famous traditional dolls! From the Mayer Mint (Germany)!

The first Russian nesting doll appeared in Moscow in the 1890s. In 1900, these "Matryoshka Dolls" were presented at the World Exhibition in Paris. The clever idea earned the bronze medal and the dolls were catapulted to fame.

The unique oval-shaped coin has been minted to the highest quality proof standard. The reverse of the coin displays a beautifully coloured traditional Matryoshka doll alongside two smaller engraved Matryoshkas.

Perhaps one of the most interesting things about this coin, however, is how it is presented...

The coin is displayed within special packaging which consists of two traditional wooden Matryoshka dolls placed one inside the other. Your very own Russian Doll protectively holds the coin and also includes a Certificate of Authenticity

A worldwide limited mintage of just 5,000 coins has been issued, so order yours today!

    Comments about 1 oz. Fine Silver Coin - My Matryoshka (2014):

    The coin was a unique shape and quite lovely.
    Unfortunately the display case was poorly made. The dolls did not close properly and the images didn't line up.
    I returned the item as I felt it didn't enhance my collection.

                      Well, I really like the coin, plus a very unique presentation. Many people wrote negative reviews about the quality of the wooden nesting dolls. My wife is from Russia, and I have visited her homeland. You can easily spend several hundred dollars for a matryoshka, I've seen them for even more money. It's not about the painting on the dolls, it is about the whole package.
                      I absolutely love it, A colored oval shape 1 oz pure silver coin in a plastic capsule, sitting proudly on the smallest doll,, Beautiful! Want a 500 dollar matryoshka?, I'm sure you can find one on-line. But I knew what I was getting, and I am very happy with my purchase

                          Very unique coin. Looks great with it's unique graphics. I was somewhat disappointed with the wait for the coin. I have noticed that it has increased in value since I purchased it. Very pleased with this coin and happy to add it to my collection.

                            Great gift for a collector of dolls that include many foreign countries' products. The fine silver coin is an excellent design which makes the whole package exceptional. I am giving this product as a gift to my wife for Christmas.

                                hello,
                                received one for my grand daughter at christmas. she loves playing with another set of russian dolls.

                                This one is very stiff to open, and there is a slight split on the inside doll. was I unlucky or are they all like this?
