- France's History revisited through its former national currencies
- First wave of the complete series of 18 10€ Silver coins
Monnaie de Paris strikes coins for France since year 864. The treasures, that belongs to its heritage, are the series’ essence. It recounts France’s History on some twenty coins, going from the Roman period until today.
The Templars coin shows the gold mass of the Philippe le Bel reign. It was the bigger circulating gold coin. The kind was represented in majesty.
The D'Artagnan coin retakes the medal of 1665 representing Louis XIV with the staff of command in his hands, and who goes over his Musketeers with their Firearms.
The Napoleon coin shows the Germinal Franc, settled by the law of 7 germinal year XI of the Revolution (27th of march 1803). Napoleon Bonaparte was the first consul. The coin was composed by 4.5 grammes of pure silver.
The series will be launched in two stages : the first wave in March 2019 and the second one in September 2019. It is composed of 18 10€ Silver coins depicting former french currencies.
Two uncolorised 50€ Silver coins, two colorised 50€ Silver coins and the 200€ Gold coin complete the series and present strong French symbols.
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.
