Le Baiser
50€ gold coin Proof quality yeardate 2018

  • Tribute paid to the French museums' most beautiful pieces of art
  • Le Baiser of Rodin, a sculpture inspired by the lving relationship between Paolo and Francesca in the Divine Comedy by Dante. 
Monnaie de Paris pays tribute to the major masterpieces of French museums.

On the obverse of the coin, we can see the famous Rodin’s sculpture “Le Baiser” ( The kiss) realised in 1882. It is presented surrounded by a window, giving the impression we are into Rodin's museum. 
The realism and delicacy are perfectly transcribed with the engraving: 
We can see on the left hand side the stamp « Chefs-d’œuvre des musées » that identifies this new series, and on the right hand side, the title of the piece of art. 

The reverse is common to the series. It depicts several views of many major French museums. An interior view of the Musée d’Orsay, on the top left, is recognizable by its distinctive clock. Beside that is a view of the façade of the Louvre as seen from the Napoleon courtyard where the pyramid is located. Below these two elements, a fresco shows the Hôtel Salé, which houses the Picasso Museum. The lower portion of the reverse side features a view of the façade of Hôtel Biron, the current Rodin Museum, and above, the famous Centre Pompidou stairway. The face value and the words “République Française” are also inscribed on the reverse side.
