French euro collector coins with jigsaw theme
« on: March 14, 2018, 05:18:46 AM »
Thanks, Pabitra. I see now, but I still don't think it works very well. What is the French example that you refer to?

France jigsaw was on a set of collector coins and since I do not collect them, I can not locate any reference. Will put up for information as and when I come across them again.


MODERATOR'S NOTE

See: Moldova - New circulating coin series 2018.

Finally I could locate the coins but fitting them in jigsaw has never been my forte

Here is the haphazard image but may be some member from France has the original image issued by the mint.You can see the background image of "RF" .

These are 5 and 25 Euro silver collector coins issued in 2013.

Guess we digress here ;) but the French mint issued such "jigsaw" pieces, or sets, a long time ago. Look at the 2003 Tour de France coins: Five coins, each of them depicts part of a bike chain. Put all five together, and you see a complete chain. One that could be purchased about five years before Matthew Dent came up with his designs. Then again, Dent's designs were made for circulation coins, and I think that affects many people's perception ...

Pabitra, here is an image that shows the Valeurs de la république "puzzle".

Cannot show a photo of my own coins, as I do not have the entire set (these coins were issued for the 100 yr anniversary of the Tour). However, CGB.fr has a photo that ... is not perfect when it comes to showing the chain circle but works. Especially when you only look at the pieces in the box. :)
