Louis I

The superb series “FROM CLOVIS TO REPUBLIQUE” from the Monnaie De Paris continues through 2013 with the release of three new coins. The sample here shows Louis XI, the other two being Francois I and Henri IV. They’re numbers 7,8 & 9 in a 15 coin set running from 2011 to 2015. Designed by the renowned artist Christian Lacroix and formed in the old hammered style, each coin is available in 22.2g .900 silver or 8.45g .920 gold. The silver has a mintage of 20,000 and the gold 1,500.

A nice custom box is available from The Paris Mint that holds the collection (one for Silver & one for Gold) at a very reasonable 34.99 Euros each.

The coins still seem to be readily available at very reasonable prices and make a stunning set. The Francois and Louis coins are with dealers now but the Henri has yet to appear at the time of writing. A full series spotlight on this range will follow shortly.
