The Sower is one of the all-time classic coin designs, from the height of World War I.

The allegorical figure of the Sower strolls in front of the rays of the newly-risen sun, sowing the seeds of good fortune for her country at the dawning of a new day.

This modern, timeless graphic represents France, which stays true to itself, whilst integrating into Europe.
