2021 Napoleon’s Angel 1oz Gold Proof Coin
|After his death on St Helena, Napoleon was initially buried there at Longwood House. But in his will he had asked to be buried “by the banks of the Seine surrounded by the French people whom I love so dearly”. His wish was granted in 1840 and he now lies in a tomb at Les Invalides in Paris under the watchful gaze of 12 magnificent stone-carved angels.
To mark the 200th Anniversary of Napoleon’s death, we pay tribute to the symbolic angel with this new design partly inspired by the Napoleon Death Medal. It featured an angel draped over the Emperor’s tomb, while this 2021 coin design shows a peaceful angel holding a watchful gaze, and a protective hand, over Napoleon’s resting place.
This gold 1oz Proof coin, presented in a luxurious case accompanied by a booklet and certificate of authenticity, is the first in a new collection which will be released as an annual series with a new ‘Angel’ themed design each year.
