1913 Romanov Tercentenary Enamel Cross. Крест в Память 300-летия Дома Романовых. This cross was originally issued in 1913 to commemorate the 300th Anniversary of the House of Romanov, and was presented primarily to Orthodox clergy for exceptional merit. The crown above the cross is the ancient "Cap of Monomakh" ("Шапка Мономаха") that was bestowed upon Mikhail I at his coronation. He reigned from 1613 to 1645. The colors of the cross were appropriately chosen for their symbolic meaning. The color blue stands for royalty, and is associated with the Mother of God. Green symbolizes life, and is the color of the Holy Spirit. 1½" (38mm) gold plated and enameled with rich colors. Comes in an attractive gift box.

The year 2013 commemorated the 400-year anniversary of the coronation of Mikhail Feodorovich Romanov, as first Tsar of Russia. The event took place in August of 1613, marking the start of the reign of the House of Romanov, the dynasty of which the most renowned sovereigns are Peter the Great, Catherine the Great, and Nicholas II. The next significant Romanov event will be in 2017 which will mark the end of the Romanov rule and 2018 which will mark the 100th anniversary of the deaths of the Tsar and his family.
