2021 France 10€ Napoleon Bicorn Hat Shape Silver Proof
200 Years ago, one of history's greatest military leaders passed away in isolation on the isle of St Helena. Napoleon I, or Napoleon Bonaparte as he is best remembered, led the French in several wars that led to the French Empire stretching across much of continental Europe.
This Monnaie De Paris bicentennial commemoration is a wonderful tribute - technologically amazing, it is shaped like Napoleon's famous two cornered hat! Each impressive coin features design elements that the Napoleonic era was famous for, including the grenadiers of the guard, Legion of Honour Medal, the sun of Austerlitz, Bonaparte’s own eagle and bees symbols, and the famous silhouette of the Emperor.
The limited mintage of just 2,500 coins is now unavailable at the Mint.
