Product Details

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.

Coin Highlights:

  • Contains 5 oz of Silver.
  • Comes in a capsule with a mint box and certificate of authenticity.
  • Mintage of only 500 coins.
  • Obverse: The Hermione with wind in all her sails, upon a stormy sea. The ship's helm and jibs are clearly visible.
  • Reverse: The Hermione's figurehead of lion holding a coat of arms is depicted on the front sail.
  • Individual number of issue on the edge.
