This series is based on literary styles and authors who have marked the history of literature in France and abroad.

The strike is made with a High Relief to highlight the author's profile.

On the occasion of the 700th anniversary of his death, Monnaie de Paris pays tribute to Dante Alighieri, Italian poet, writer, thinker and politician.

On the obverse is represented in profile, the portrait of Dante Alighieri, the most famous Italian poet. The three parts of the Divine Comedy are represented in his cap: Hell, Purgatory and Paradise. As in Botticelli's representation, the author is crowned with laurel, a symbol of glory. The Duomo and the coat of arms of Florence are also represented to pay tribute to his birthplace.

The reverse is common to the entire "Art of the Pen series". Several emblematic quotations are inscribed on it, such as Voltaire’s “Le mieux est l’ennemi du bien", Dante Alighieri's "Lasciate ogne speranza voi ch'intrate", William Shakespeare's "To be or not to be: that is the question" or Nietzsche's "Was mich nicht umbringt, macht mich stärker". A feather is engraved in the center of the coin and underneath the title of the serie. The mention "RF" is designed at the bottom right of the coin as well as the hallmark of the artist, Joaquin Jimenez.
