White House Commemorative Egg

For more than 40 years, America’s Egg Farmers have presented the Commemorative Egg during the annual White House Easter Egg Roll. This tradition started in 1977 to First Daughter Amy Carter and continues today with a presentation to the First Lady of the United States.

Each egg, crafted by a specialized egg artist who is typically a member of the International Egg Art Guild, is presented as a gift from the artist on behalf of the American Egg Board, the marketing arm for America’s Egg Farmers. Once presented, the eggs may become part of the First Lady’s historical archive, as housed by the National Archives.
