The Guillaume the Conqueror coin shows the Denier of Richard II, duke of Normandy and Guillaume the Conqueror's grandfather. Richard II is the first who put his duke title on the coins.
The Louis XVI coin retakes the 30 sols coin create in 1791 under the constitutional monarchy. It represents the Louis XVI face and, for the first time, we can see the "Roi des francais" mention instead of latin words.
The Eiffel Tower coin retakes the medal celebrating the "tower of 300 meters" in the Champ de Mars during the exhibition of 1889.
The reverse is common for all the series. It shows the face value surrounded by two branches, one of them in oak, in a contemporary way. The other one, in bay, evokes the euro symbol. All the reverse design is framed by an assembly of lines representing the Hexagon.
