The French National Mint, known as La Monnaie de Paris, dates back to 864 - it is the oldest institution in France.
This year they have entered a unique collaboration with Sèvres to produce an exceptional piece of art...
Sèvres was started in 1740 during the reign of King Louis XVI and rose to become the pre-eminent porcelain manufacturer in the whole of Europe. Sèvres porcelain is incredibly valuable with individual pieces selling for in excess of £100,000 at auction.
The piece that they have created, and that you can add to your collection today is La Monnaie de Paris French Excellency Silver Proof coin.
It is designed to resemble a Sèvres plate - for which they are famous. In the middle of this coin is an original piece of Sèvres porcelain.
The central design carries the image of Marie-Antoinette recalling the technique of paintings widely used on the Sèvres tableware. The design around the outer rim is based on an adaptation of a design originally created for Louis XVI. This is a coin with history.
We have managed to secure 60 of these coins for our collectors, and each one will come with a luxurious presentation case and an official certificate of authority.
Being such an unusual coin makes it highly collectible, and with just 60 of them available it is strongly advised that you secure yours today to avoid disappointment.
