Details

Napoleon Bonaparte may be the most famous Frenchman entombed in Paris, but it is his namesake nephew, Napoleon III, who is responsible for converting a squalid medieval capital into the most romantic city in the world. This bronze 5 centimes coin was issued by the French Second Empire and features the portrait of Napoleon III, left facing. The reverse shows an eagle.
