Women of France : Catherine de Médicis, Marquise de Pompadour et Olympe de Gouges

For this year’s edition, this series that began in 2016 will honour three of the most important women in French history. These coins feature a free striking that highlights motifs inspired by rich textile motif of that time. Queen Clotilde, Queen Mathilde and Joan of Arc are now followed by Catherine de Médicis, marquise de Pompadour and Olympe de Gouges, who will be honoured in 2017.
