Why add this Women of France: Catherine De Medicis 10 Euro Silver GEM Proof to your collection?

The Women of France series, introduced by the Monnaie de Paris (Paris Mint) in 2016, celebrates prominent French women who had a significant impact on the history of France. This fourth release of the series, struck from .642 Troy oz. of .900 fine silver, pays homage to Catherine de Medicis (1519-1589). This beautifully designed commemorative silver proof measures 37mm in diameter and has a mintage limit of 5,000 coins.

Spectacular Image Details

The obverse features an incredibly lifelike portrait of Catherine De Medicis, surrounded by the inscriptions "CATHERINE DE MEDICIS" and the years of her life "1519-1589". The background field pattern is based on a tapestry from Chateau de Blois.

Chateau de Chenonceau is depicted on the reverse, with an artichoke in the foreground, one of the vegetables that Catherine introduced to the garden. Inscribed "CHENONCEAU 1561," "10 EURO," "RF" and "2017." The initials "CHD" appear in a repeating pattern in the background, a motif seen throughout Chateau de Chenonceau.
