French commemorative gold coin celebrating the 125th anniversary of the Eiffel Tower. Mintage of just 500 coins!
Part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site series, Monnaie de Paris is celebrating the 125th anniversary of the Eiffel Tower, which welcomes over seven million visitors a year and represents one of the best known architectural feats in the world. Interestingly, the tower was not intended as a permanent structure. The original plan was for the tower to be torn down after 20 years, but it proved so valuable for communication purposes that the French government allowed it to remain.
On the obverse of this .999 gold proof coin is the Eiffel Tower with a shiny effect in the foreground. The background highlights the monument's metal architecture. Between the legs of the Tower, the massive windows of the Palais de Chaillot can be seen. The reverse is separated into two parts. The UNESCO logo and the face value are on the left side and an aerial view of the location of the two monuments appears on the right side. Each of these Proof Gold coins come to you in a box and with certificate of authenticity.
