The Little Prince coin celebrates the 80th anniversary of the cognominal novel. This philosophical tale with layers of symbolism finds a new interpretation in our coin.
The obverse features the Little Prince gazing at the diamond-insert stars. His friend fox lovingly wraps around the planet while the 3D-insert rose radiates its elegance. The high-relief images of symbolic baobabs, the plane, and the box with the sheep guide the observers through the plot. Altogether, they invite you to reflect on the eternal values of life, love, and friendship.
Let the Little Prince coin open up with new meanings for you as you observe its allure.
