Description of obverse and reverse Obverse: this series’ coins were designed with a plate shape, as a tribute to Sèvres’ knows how and tradition. It has in its centre a ceramic insert representing the centre of a plate. A portrait of Marie-Antoine is drawn, recalling the technique of paintings used on the Sèvres tableware. On the rim of the plate, we can find a frieze adapted from a Sèvres’ design, created for Louis XVI. The yeardate is inscribed on the lower part of this frieze. On the reverse of the coin, the face value is surrounded by Sèvres typical designs. Patterns selected from the « Attributs des petits repas ». Small games, fishes, vegetables... presented in sequence like in a meal. In the centre, we can see the RF letters and a horn of plenty, like a stamp for this new service created by Monnaie de Paris.
A brief annotation Since the founding of its porcelain factory in 1740 under the reign of Louis XV, Sèvres has stood at the vanguard of technical progress. Employing the cream of artisan talent, it serves as an incubator for skills and expertise which have been passed on through the generations. The feats of technical skill and inventiveness behind these masterpieces of porcelain continue to inspire the factory as it celebrates its 275th anniversary this year.

Не столь эффектна, как монета-чаша, но тоже весьма интересная монета.
