Why add this 1859 France Napoleon III Gold Coin to your collection?

Napoleon III became the first elected president of France in 1848. Near the conclusion of his term, rather than seeking re-election, Napoleon seized power and founded the Second French Empire, thus re-establishing the French monarchy. Measuring 35 mm in diameter, the 1859 dated coin of Napoleon III was struck from 0.9334 Troy oz. of .900 fine gold at the Paris and Strasbourg branches of the French Mint.

Classically Styled Design by Jean-Jacques Barre

The obverse features the right facing, bare headed image of Napoleon III flanked by the inscriptions "NAPOLEON III" and "EMPEREUR," with the designer's name "BARRE" below.

The French Coat of Arms at the time of issue is depicted on the reverse with "EMPIRE FRANCAIS" curving above. Additional inscriptions include "100 FRS," "1859" and Mint mark ("A" for Paris or "BB" for Strasbourg).
