Coin Story

This new series honours a key part of French culture, representing the most illustrious characters from French literature in all its forms: from novels and short stories to theatre, philosophy, and more. The series begins with three legendary characters: Cosette, the martyred child of Les Misérables, Nana, Zola’s femme fatale with a tragic destiny, and Meursault, the anti-hero of The Stranger by Camus. Unveiled over a period of five years, each year of the series will be dedicated to a group of characters with similar destinies, or who have had a similar moral influence on readers.

Reverse Design

On the reverse is a portrait of Victor Hugo along with a quote about Cosette from Les Misérables.

Obverse Design

On the obverse appears the famous scene in which the child struggles to carry a heavy bucket of water along with the title of the book.


The Cosette - Victor Hugo gold coin comes in a presentation case with a Certificate of Authenticity.
