This is the first coin of a new series honoring great French ships. Every year for five years, this series will pay tribute to a sailing ship, a warship and an ocean liner. The Hermione became famous when Gen. Lafayette ferried her to the United States in 1780 to join the American side in the American Revolutionary War. A replica was constructed and launched in 2012 to re-enact this historical journey.
