Mintage of 20,000 coins!
This Proof Silver coin, which contains .900 Silver, is part of the “From Clovis to the Republic – 1,500 Years of French History” series. This series debuted in 2011 and pays tribute to the key French sovereigns who most affected the French nation’s history. Three coins are released per year, and this issue, honors Philippe II Auguste (1165-1223). He achieved major military victories which reaffirmed his royal power and brought the Feudal era to an end. He constructed the Louvre in order to demonstrate his resolve to make Paris the capital. On the obverse, Philippe II Auguste is depicted wearing one of the first crowns to bear the royal fleur de lys. The King's name appears along the edge of the coin. The reverse features the Louvre in Philippe II Auguste's time. The dates of his reign (1180-1223) also appear at the top of the coin. Each of these beautiful Silver coins comes in a box and with a certificate of authenticity.
