First French Euro Commemorative Coins Available

France's Ministry of National Education and Ministry for the Economy joined forces to organize a competition entitled "Imagine the first French collector's coin in euro." About 30,000 9 to 10 year olds participated, with the winning design created by students attending the Jean Jaures school in Bort les Orgues in central France. Classmates at another school in Salmagne, in the eastern part of the country, created a colorful presentation card that holds the coin.

The imaginative design on France's first euro denominated commemorative coin features a string of stars that changes into children as it swings around the denomination; the children then continue to the other side of the coin, where they encircle the earth. A dove, holding an olive branch in its beak, flies above.

This 30 mm. brilliant uncirculated 1/4 euro coin, minted from the same golden alloy as the euro coins made for circulation, is available at only $9.95 mounted in a colorful presentation card.
The first precious metal collector euro issued by France also has a 1/4 euro denomination. It pictures the goddess Europa on one side and all 7 French euro trade coins on the reverse, surrounded by the names of the 12 countries in the European Monetary Union: Austria, Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Portugal and Spain. This 13 gm., 900 fine silver proof coin comes in a colorful album that contains an informative booklet. It is priced at $25.
