Why buy this Silver Proof 2016 10 Euro France UEFA Euro 2016 - Headkick with Gilt Ball?

This Silver Proof 10 Euro 2016 France UEFA Euro 2016 - Headkick with Gilt Ball is ideal for sports fans and those who like coins that make the most of the latest minting technology alike. That is because the gilt ball was not minted within the blank, but rather inserted through the blank during minting. The coin was struck at Monnaie de Paris from .900 fine silver. Mintage of this piece, which commemorates the extremely popular soccer tournament, was capped at 10,000 pieces.

Striking Design of a Header

The obverse of the coin shows a player heading the gilt ball, which stands out from the blank both visually and physically. The player shows good form in striking the ball at the hairline. The tournament's logo is included under the ball.

On the reverse is a cartoon-ish design that includes several fans celebrating around a soccer field, along with one section that looks like part of a crowded stadium. The Arc de Triomphe, one of the most famous landmarks in the country's capital, is integrated into the design as the goals at both ends of the pitch. "10 EURO," the face value of the coin, is inscribed below, with the gilt ball used as the zero. Also included is the year of issue of the coin, "2016."
