Product Details

This 5 ounce silver coin was minted by Monnaie de Paris to commemorate the 1st ocean-going ironclad warship. A handsome 50 Euro Proof coin! Mintage of just 500 coins!
The fifth coin of a new series featuring great French ships. Every year for five years, this series will pay tribute to a sailing ship, a warship and an ocean liner. This 50 Euro Proof Silver coin depicts The Gloire.

The Gloire is considered as the first battleship on the open sea in the service of the French Navy.

The battleship, the Gloire, is represented on the top of the coin's obverse with its sails and stack which denote that the ship was powered not only by the wind but also by a steam engine driving a single propeller. On the low part, under a rope, appears the detail of the battleship and scuttles (opening in the side of a ship by which pass the gun barrels). The reverse is a composition which is common to all the sailing ships and is featured in all five coins. Each of these beautiful Silver coins comes in a box and with a certificate of authenticity.
