Women of France: Joséphine de Beauharnais, Désirée Clary and George Sand

Every year, this series honours three important women in French history. For this third year, it enters the 19th century with a French empress, a queen of Sweden and a woman of letters.
These coins feature a “free strike” that highlights backgrounds inspired by rich textile motifs from that era.
