A brief annotation
This coin pay tribute to the splendour of the cathedral of Notre Dame, with money from each sale going to the restoration fund following the fire of 15 April. Notre Dame Cathedral, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, suffered a serious fire on 15 April, that destroyed the spire, much of the roof and some of the interior of the medieval building. Within hours of the fire a global fundraising appeal had been launched, with French president Emmanuel Macron pledging to rebuild the cathedral.
