A Liberty silver dollar US coin in a nest of shredded US bills. This is a statement on the relative value of paper vs. precious metals, but the title was too obscure, and the shredded money too obscure, so it is nest egg.
On the other hand, I am glad we do not have to carry around dollar coins as large and as heavy as this one.

Love the shredded money, details like that really impress me. Lighting on coin slightly flat. 8
