2021 Napoleon’s Angel 1oz Silver Proof Coin with Selective Gold Plate
|The angels that stand guard over Napoleon’s tomb in Paris were created by French neoclassical sculptor Jean Jacques Pradier in tribute to Napoleon and his greatest military achievements. They remain in Napoleon’s crypt to this day; peaceful; protecting; eternal.
As well as those 12 magnificent angels, this new coin design is inspired by the Napoleon Death Medal. It featured an angel draped over the Emperor’s tomb, both of which are reinterpreted on this limited edition 1oz silver Proof with selective gold plating which shows a peaceful angel beside Napoleon’s resting place. Much like the angels who look over his tomb in Paris, the angel holds a watchful gaze over Napoleon’s gravestone, which is inscribed with his monogram surrounded by a classical laurel wreath.
This limited-edition Silver Proof Coin with selective gold plate is presented in a bespoke case along with a booklet and certificate of authenticity. It is the first in a series of coins which will be released annually, each featuring a different ‘Angel’ themed design.
