Bravo, Frizio! He looks a bit older than 21, but that would probably have been politically wise and it would have pleased his father. Of course, we cannot be sure, but I think there is a fair chance that on French silver, Napoleon II would have looked left, but right on gold. His father looked right on silver, left on gold.

For the reverse, I think he would have discontinued the laurel wreath, as he couldn't claim any military victories. A good successor would have be the crowned N, as on the 10 centimes 1807-1810, but with a small roman II added underneath.
