The Monnaie de Paris has released new collector coins which mark the bicentenary anniversary of the death of Emperor Napoleon, a French military leader who rose to the rank of emperor while conquering much of Europe in the early 19th century.

Napoleon’s legacy is remembered still as a reformer who instituted initiatives such as higher education, a comprehensive tax code, and road and sewer systems. In terms of finance, Napoleon established the Banque de France, the first central bank in French history, and simplified the coins and currency by introducing the French franc of 100 centimes. Another legacy of Napoleon was his set of civil laws, the Code Civil — now often known as the Napoleonic Code. This consisted of the development of the civil law legal system with its stress on clearly written and accessible law, much of it is still in use in France and in many countries in Continental Europe.

Also noted for his somewhat short stature, at 1.57 metres (or five feet, two inches), he was actually the height of an average French male.
