2021 France 10€ History of Mankind - Washington Silver Proof
The American Revolutionary War, or War of Independence, is one of the most important events in the history of the United States of America. As such, the national Mint of France, the Monnaie de Paris has taken a sideways turn in their History of Mankind series to pay tribute to some of the events during this time more than 200 years ago.
This coin, the second in this US-centric historic sub-series depicts George Washington's arrival at the Siege of Boston in 1776. Amazingly, given that Monnaie De Paris is over 1,000 years old, there are contemporary commemorative medals struck for this occasion and the Mint has taken inspiration for this 2021 dated silver coin! Featuring a portrait of Washington himself on the obverse, the reverse depicts the moment of his arrival on horseback at Boston.
