Gorgeously Detailed Historic Imagery
Obverse: The obverse features a rendition of Lady Liberty, with a staff resting on her shoulder topped by a Phrygian cap. Inscribed “LIBERTAS AMERICANA” (Freedom for America), “4 JUIL 1776” and “20 EURO.”
Reverse: On the reverse, France is allegorically represented as Minerva, the goddess of wisdom and war, as she thrusts a shield towards a leopard that symbolizes Great Britain. The young American nation is personified below as a child Hercules, in the act of choking two snakes which are emblematic of the American military victories at the battles of Saratoga and Yorktown. The inscription “NON SINE DIIS ANIMOSUS INFANS” (the brave child was helped by the gods) curves above, with the battle dates below. The issue date “2023” and “RF” (French Republic) flank the image.
