On the occasion of the 90th anniversary of his birth, Monnaie de Paris pays tribute to Jacques Chirac.
The drawing takes up a solemn profile of President Jacques Chirac looking to the future. It is surrounded by several symbols representing his action: a euro symbol, as sign of its involvement in the introduction of the Euro and his European spirit, and a French flag represented in heraldic colours, itself embellished with the RF as a reference to his presidency. His dates as well as his name are inserted in the acronym of the Euro. The mintmarks as well as the yeardate fit into the design.
This coin is available in blister.
