2016 France 250 Euro Gold Rooster NGC MS69 First Struck
A Near-Perfect 2016 French Gold Rooster!
This 2016 250 Euro French Gold Rooster is struck in 4.5 grams of 99.9% gold at the famous Paris Mint. The coin is certified by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) in near-perfect Mint State-69 First Strike (MS69 FS) condition and is also certified by the mint to be among the first 100 coins minted. This fact is on the coin's label with the notation "One of First 100 Struck."
In 2008, Paris Mint began a series honoring numismatic coins by creating modern versions of past historic coins. The iconic French Rooster has been honored on a three coin series minted between 2014 and 2016, this coin being the last in the series.
The obverse features a rooster bust 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.
With only 100 First Strikes available, this special high face value Gold Rooster is sure to disappear fast. Order yours now!
