Mintage of 20,000 coins!
This Proof Silver coin, which is made of .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 key French sovereigns who most affected the French nation’s history. Three coins are released per year and this issue honors Saint Louis (1214-1270). Saint Louis, also known as Louis IX, was the founder of royal justice where the king assumed the role of “supreme bestower of justice.” He was often chosen as an arbiter for the quarrels among the rulers of Europe. In 1297, he became the first French monarch to be canonized, and remains the only one to this day.
On the obverse of this Silver coin is the face of a young Saint Louis. The king's name appears along the edge of the coin. The reverse features the oak of justice and the dates of the king’s reign (1226-1270). Each of these beautiful Silver coins comes in a box and with a certificate of authenticity.
