- A coin that illustrates History
The Sower series presents the most historically significant coins of France’s history. In 2019, the Germinal Franc is honoured. Created under Napoleon Bonaparte, the Germinal Franc was set up to revive the economic activity by fixing a certain weight of metal.
The reverse evokes both the Consulate and first Empire period with Napoleon Ist and the Great Army. The obverse and reverse of the Germinal franc are then represented with highlighting the significant facts at this time : the Legion of Honour, the bee and the laurel crown.
The obverse depicts Roty’s Sower in a more contemporary setting.
