Why order this Round Proof 2020 France €10 22.20 gm Silver Lafayette?

France played an important role in the American Revolution, helping the under trained and under equipped Continental Army to defeat what was then the most powerful military on the planet. Now, Monnaie de Paris is celebrating the run up to the 250th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence with a series of coins that celebrates French support for the American Revolution. This coin was modeled on a medal that was struck to honor Marquis de Lafayette. De Lafayette left France in 1777 to serve under Gen. George Washington.

  • This proof has a face value of €10 that is recognized in France.
  • The coin was struck from 22.2 g of .900 fine silver.
  • The coin is part of a mintage of just 2,500 pieces.
  • This is the first in a series of coins leading up to the 250th Anniversary of the Declaration of Independence.
  • The coin was struck at Monnaie de Paris.
  • Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) graded the coin Proof 70.
  • NGC also certified this piece Ultra Cameo and First Day of Issue.
  • The coin comes with a certificate of authenticity from the mint.

Striking Marquis de Lafayette Design by Rambert Dumarest

Obverse: Rambert Dumarest designed a left-side portrait of Marquis de Lafayette for the obverse. The design replicates the original medal. It is flanked by a pair of inscriptions that did not appear on that medal, "10 EURO" and "RF" (Republique Francaise). Inscriptions along the rim note de Lafayette's name and ranks in French.

Reverse: The emblem of the French Grenadiers combines with the coat of arms of Paris to make the reverse design. A banner on the top translates to "Live free or die." Rim inscriptions, which like the inscription on the banner are in French, mean, "Volunteer Grenadier Company, Third Battalion, Sixth Division." The date, "2020," appears at the bottom as an addition to the original design.
