History Meets Fashion

Designed exclusively for Monnaie de Paris by acclaimed fashion designer Jean Paul Gaulter, this €10 coin celebrates Corsica, the Mediterranean island southeast of the French mainland and birthplace of military leader Napoléon Bonaparte.

The coin features a feminised rendition of Napoléon's monument in Ajaccio, Corsica. The woman is dressed in a Gaultier-designed couture version of a Napoleonic military uniform, complete with a bicorne hat, sword and epaulettes.  Standing on a fashion runway which extends from the statue's podium, the design truly is a blend of Gaultier's vision with a historical twist.

The reverse features a classic Euro design, REPUBLIQUE FRANCAISE and laurel leaves winding around the coin's face value.

Struck in an uncirculated base metal containing 333/1000 silver, this gorgeous coin is a stylish tribute to the culture and beauty of France.
