tabbs Posted October 22, 2006 Report Share Posted October 22, 2006 Don't know how many of you collect French euro collector coins. But here's the latest bunch. Some designs I like (e.g. Mozart's portrait, or the idea of a stylized guillotine on the Death Penalty coin), and others - such as the hands on the piano, or Marie Curie in front of the students - I don't find very appealing. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (born 250 years ago) €0.25 (silver), €10 (gold), €20 (silver) Abolition of the Death Penalty (25 years ago) €1.50 (silver), €20 Euro (gold), €50 (gold, partly colored), €100 (gold, partly colored) Marie Curie/Maria Sklodowska: First woman to teach at the Sorbonne (100 years ago) €20 (silver), €20 (gold) Dôme des Invalides (completed 300 years ago) €1.50 (silver), €10 (gold) The main problem I have with the Monnaie de Paris, however, is its issue policy: An extremely high number of issues per year, combined with low mintages. I hardly ever buy new issues any more. Ah well, chacun à son goût ... Christian Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
