This Silver Rooster Has a Lot to Crow About!
This 2016 French 100 Euro Silver Rooster celebrates the iconic French Rooster, an emblem of the French spirit since the Middle Ages. In 2014, the Paris Mint created a three-year series featuring the Rooster, with each subsequent coin showing more and more of the design, culminating in the full image of the bird in 2016.
This example is denominated at 100 Euros, a substantial face value, and is struck in 50 grams of 90% silver. As an official distributor of the Paris Mint, GovMint.com obtained the first 250 coins struck. This coin has been certified as Mint State-69 (MS69) by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). In addition, each is certified by NGC and the mint as a "First Struck" coin. Just 1.66% of the total mintage can achieve this certification by NGC. Each NGC label notes that the coin is "One of First 250 Struck."
The obverse features a rooster with a comb and feathers in a modern style. The coin shows the full body of the rooster standing proud and confident. It carries the French motto "Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité" (Liberty, Equality, Fraternity). In the background, the French flag is depicted: horizontal lines represent blue, no stripes represent white and vertical stripes represent red.
The reverse shows the face value surrounded by two branches (oak & laurel) that evoke the Euro symbol. The entire reverse motif is framed in a hexagonal design representing the shape of France. Add this scarce French Silver Rooster to your collection today!
