Every three years since 2008, Monnaie de Paris has revisited classic designs that honor and feature revered symbols of French numismatics.

Entitled “Ors de France,” 2023 began a series of three historical and emblematic coins that have greatly contributed to French numismatic heritage during the Imperial era. Last year's design highlighted the coinage of France’s Second Empire and featured the effigy of Emperor Napoleon III.  This second release highlights the reign (1610–1643) of King Louis XIII (1601–1643) during which time, France underwent a significant monetary reform.

The obverse design is based on an effigy of King Louis XIII of France created by engraver Jean Varin for the original Louis d’or coinage. To the left of the portrait is a background pattern the royal crowned monogram and the fleur de lis. The letter A in the centre of the monograms denoted the Mint of Paris, where the original coins were produced. The additional inscription LIBERTE EGALITE and FRATERNITE are separated by miniature fleur de lis and shown to the right of the King’s portrait along the rim.

The reverse is common to the entire series and highlights the three eras to which the inspirations of this trilogy belong.
