As the nephew to the fabled French emperor, Napoleon Bonaparte, Napoleon III, lead France through a tumultuous period, becoming the first democratically elected President of France in 1848. He simultaneously holds the position as the last monarch of France, consolidates power following his final term as president in 1852, and ruling as emperor until 1870. Although the historical opinion of Napoleon III remains varied, what can be agreed upon is the amount of progress that the nation of France made during his rule. The reconstruction of Paris, modernization of the French Banking system, and establishment of modern agriculture within France are all initiatives that Napoleon III is credited with. Hence, the nation of France paid homage to King Napoleon III with the production of gold sovereigns, containing 0.933 troy ounces of gold, issued from 1848 until 1870. These historical coins are being offered to you today at the most competitive price on the web!

Illustrated on the obverse is the right-facing portrait of the French ruler, by famed designer Jean Jacques Barre. The coinage was reflective of the times, gold sovereigns produced from 1848 until 1852 bore the inscription "Republic Francaise," while coinage produced circa 1852 read, "Empereur Francaise." The ruler's title and the designer surname is also included.

The reverse side has the coins 10-franc face value-centered with the year of issue, encircled by a laurel wreath. There is also the modification of either "Republic Francaise," indicative of the French republic until 1852, and the "Empire Francaise" characteristic of the empire until 1870.
