2012 50 Euro 5 oz Silver Proof Great French Ships - The Hermione

Product Details

Mintage of 500 coins!
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 is under construction and should be launched in 2012 to re-enact this historical journey. The Hermione is represented on the obverse, with wind in all her sails, upon a stormy sea. The ship's helm and jibs are clearly visible. The reverse is a composition common to all five sailing ship coins. The Hermione's figurehead of lion holding a coat of arms is depicted on the front sail of this reverse design. Each of these beautiful Silver coins comes in a box and with a certificate of authenticity.
