2€ commemorative coin France 2017 – 100th anniversary of the death of Auguste Rodin
Feature: 100th anniversary of the death of Auguste Rodin
Description: The obverse of the 2017 Rodin French 2 Euro coins features a thoughtful depiction of the artist, who is aptly paired on the coin with a partial figure of his contemplative sculpture known as The Thinker.
On the bottom right of the cameo device are the inscriptions “A. Rodin”, which appears to be a replication of his signature, and the dual date “1917-2017” indicating the centennial of Rodin’s death. The acronym RF, indicating the coin’s nation of origin (République Française) is found atop the coin between Rodin’s head and that of the statue.
The coin’s outer ring depicts the 12 stars of the European flag.
