225th anniversary of the "Festival of the Federation"
The French national holiday brings the people of France together in celebration of the Republic. The design shows Marianne, the symbol of the Republic, depicted in profile in a graphic, contemporary style.
She is wearing the Phrygian cap. On the right the tricolour cockade appears in outline above the letters RF.
The year is written in the centre of the coin.
The left side features a stanza from the poem "Liberté" by the French poet Paul Eluard, an allusion to the motto of the French Republic. The mint marks appear alongside this extract.
