The Monnaie de Paris recently launched a new series of coins celebrating the French involvement in the American War of Independence.

The second issue marks the arrival of George Washington in Boston.

On the obverse, an undraped bust of George Washington facing right. Below the bust is the artist's name, "Duvivier Paris F". The engraving is taken from an old medal struck by Monnaie de Paris, which gives the coin authenticity. At the bottom of the coin is inscribed "COMITIA AMERICANA", which in Latin means "The American Congress". All around the coin, the inscription "GEORGIO WASHINGTON SVMPREMO DVCI EXERCITVVM ADSERTORI LIBERTATIS" is present, which can be translated as "The American Congress to George Washington, General-in-Chief of the armies, the defender of freedom".

On the reverse, we can see Washington on Dorchester Heights, leading its four officers on horseback towards the city of Boston. To the right of the coin are a fort, cannons and cannonballs laying on the ground. Washington points to the British ships fleeing the city. At the top of the coin, the inscription "HOSTIBUS PRIMO FUGATIS" can be translated as "For the first time, the enemies are on the run.» At the bottom, we can see the inscription "BOSTONIUM RECUPERATUM / XVII MARTI / MDCCLXXVI" which can be translated as "Boston taken over on March 17 1776".
