The Gold content of these 10 Francs coins is .575 oz. These Gold Francs from Monaco were issued in honor of Princess Grace in the year that she died. These examples are considered patterns and are marked "ESSAI" (French for trial) above the date on the reverse.
The obverse shows the former Grace Kelly, an iconic American movie star from the 1950s, in profile surrounded by her title "PRINCESSE GRACE DE MONACO" and her dates of birth and death (1929-1982).
Only 2,000 of these patterns have been struck, and they are rarely encounted outside of Europe. This example has been graded Mint State 68 by NGC!
