In 2021, we will celebrate the bicentenary of the passing away of Napoleon I. This year will therefore be truly "Napoleon Year"celebrated in France and internationally. We obviously couldn't miss this event and wanted to celebrate it not only from several angles of the heritage of this period of French history but also through our different know how.
This bronze medal representing Napoleon at the Great St Bernard Pass was made by casting alead from our historical archives.
Here we find Napoleon, then First Consul, crossing the Alps, marking the beginning of the second Italian campaign. The thunderbolt in his hand refers to the speedand energy with which he led his army through the Alpine passes.
This numbered medal can be personalized on the reverse.
