2019 France 10€ Notre Dame Reconstruction Silver Proof
One of the most beloved monuments in Europe, the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, France, was all but destroyed by fire on April 15th, 2019. An icon of the city, the cathedral's destruction was felt by local residents and the millions of tourists worldwide that have visited the site.
Less than 10 days after the fire was extinguished, France's national mint, Monnaie de Paris, commissioned this silver coin to help raise funds for the reconstruction of this globally famous structure. For every coin sold, 20 euros (roughly A$32) will be donated to the reconstruction fund!
Featuring one of the famous gargoyles, and the rose window, most prominently, each official French legal tender coin is struck from 90% silver and is housed in a case with certificate of authenticity.
