Monnaie de Paris pays tribute to the major masterpieces of French museums, this time with the Winged Victory of Samothrace, a famous sculpture on display at the Louvre in Paris.

The obverse shows the sculpture representing Niké, the goddess of Victory, key symbol for Hellenic Greece. Enhanced by wings and drape, this statue without head and arms came to Earth to honor the winner according to the legend. In the background, pillars are referring to the room in which the Monument is displayed at the Louvre Museum. The name of this masterpiece is written at the top of the coin. The stamp “Chefs d’oeuvre des Musées” (Masterpieces of the Museums) has been added on the right side.

The reverse is common for the series and shows a mix of French museums views.
