The French Napoleon is undoubtedly the modern coin with the richest historical value, minted in Paris, Strasbourg and Lyon from 1852 to 1870. The figure engraved on the obverse side of is Charles Louis Napoleon Bonaparte, nephew of the famous Napoleon I Bonaparte. Charles Louis Napoleon was elected president of France at the time of the Second Republic, established by the revolution of 1848. A few years later, as result of the coup d'etat of December 2nd 1851, the French Republican Assembly was dissolved and Louis Napoleon was proclaimed Emperor under the name Napoleon III. Thus a two-decade period of prosperity began in France. The Franco-Prussian War of 1870, the surrender of Paris after the 132-day siege and the abdication of Napoleon III marked the end of this remarkable period. Later on the Third Republic was established in France and its turbulent history lasted till World War II. After the establishment of the Second Empire in 1848 a notable reconstruction of Paris began, a license was given for foundation of the the first French investment banks, and the signing of the Commercial Treaty for Free Trade with Great Britain marked the beginning of a new era in the world trade. During this era international payments were made with gold coins, the most famous of which was the French Napoleon. It turned into a European gold coin standard, and the monetary units of Italy, Belgium and Switzerland were minted like it.
