Napoleon – 200th Anniversary 10z Silver Proof

 

This unique and special edition of Napoleon 1oz Silver Proof coin is a tribute to the 200th Anniversary of his passing. Very few leaders in world history have had such an impact.

These coins are issued by the island of Saint Helena. Saint Helena is a British territory located in the South Atlantic Ocean 1870 km away from the coast of South Africa. It is here where Napoleon spent the last 6 years of his life living in exile. Even while in exile, he studied English with the goal of being able to read English newspapers and books. He was a natural born leader from a very young age and these four coins uniquely capture a time in his life when his life had no boundaries.

The reverse features a youthful frontal portrait of Napoleon Bonaparte in front of the Paris Arc de Triomphe; in the left field the Logo of the East India Company.

Inscription: NAPOLEON BONAPARTE 200TH ANNIVERSARY.

On the rim of this silver coin are his lifetime milestones which list the many reasons he was so heralded.

The obverse side depicts the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II to the right with the initials JC (for Jody Clark); around it St. HELENA 2021 ELIZABETH II and the denomination in the exergue.

 

Details-

EIC Bullion in partnership with CIT have created a beautiful 1oz ultra-high relief portrait using smartminting® technology.

This commemorative coin combines several stages of Napoleon’s life: while the portrait symbolises the hope for a peaceful future, the triumphal arch stands for the wave of victories of the French troops that briefly put Europe under the rule of revolutionary. Which led to about 3.5 million lives lost and robbed France of its supremacy in Europe.

The East India Company played a small part in Napoleons exile on the island of St Helena and after five years, on May 5 1821, Napoleon Bonaparte died on the island at the age of 51.
