Jean de La Fontaine - 400th anniversary
Fables mini-medal blister White metal 34mm

On the occasion of the 400th anniversary of his birth, Monnaie de Paris pays tribute to Jean de La Fontaine, the greatest French fabulist and member of the Académie française.
Through his texts, Jean de la Fontaine still fascinates us today by using animals to represent the great traits of human character. Dedicated to the Dauphin Louis of France, Jean de la Fontaine leaves us a literary legacy of more than 250 fables as well as numerous collections of stories and poems.

On the front of the blister pack is an illustration by the artist Thomas Bass, showing Jean de La Fontaine at work. He was inspired by an unusual show to create one of his fables.

The mini-medal is adorned with a bust of the poet, looking at one of his most famous fables: The Raven and the Fox.

The reverse of the blister is numbered and includes a short text on Jean de La Fontaine.
