On the obverse of the silver coins, a stylised cyclist is shown wearing his coloured jersey. The cyclist is depicted arriving at the Arc de Triomphe, the arriving line at the end of the competition. The reverse is common to all the coins in this series and features the Tour de France logo with the inscription «100e edition». Corsica and the Arc de Triomphe represent the starting line and the finish line of the 2013 race.
A brief annotation
