Since 2014, the series French Excellence each year highlights one of the crafts that constitute the unique heritage of French luxury.

Jean René Lacoste was a French tennis player and businessman. He was nicknamed "the Crocodile" because of how he dealt with his opponents; he is also known worldwide as the creator of the Lacoste tennis shirt, which he introduced in 1929, and eventually founded the brand and its logo in 1933.

On the obverse, the racket handle is similar to that of an actual tennis racket, with the engraving reflecting the reality of the object. A crocodile and a ball are featured on the stringing design. The Crocodile, René Lacoste’s nickname, has become the brand’s emblem. And as a tribute to Simone Thion de La Chaume, his wife and a golf champion, the tennis ball has the texture of a golf ball.

On the reverse, the same realism can be observed, with only one additional detail: the manufacture year engraved at the top of the handle. The stringing is replaced by the emblematic cotton piqué pattern. And the stringing design appears at the top of a polo shirt placed below the face value, with the zeros resembling tennis balls.
