FR: Olympics 2008 - Fencing


Recommended Posts

When a sword, a saber and a foil are directed at Beijing, it's ... Olympics time. :ninja:


The Monnaie de Paris just issued two coins dedicated to the 2008 Games, with probably more to follow. (Their annual output is immense ...) The design looks a little odd, with the three pointing at the Chinese capital, but is interesting.




The "Fencing" piece is available in silver (face value €1.50) and gold (face value €10). And the French Mint has similarly hefty surcharges as the US Mint, but the face value is kind of theoretical with such pieces anyway.


Silver (900): Ø 37 mm - 22.2 g - EU price €41

Gold (920): Ø 22 mm - 8.45 g - EU price €289
