I cant recall ever seeing a better exhibit of French coins outside of France, stated Ira Goldberg President of Goldberg Coins and Collectibles, Inc.

This impressive exhibit of many of the finest known rare French coins will be insured for $10 million for the display, added Goldberg who is one of the numismatic professionals providing guidance in assembling the wide-ranging Tyrant Collection of superb quality, historic U.S. and world coins for its anonymous owner.
Exhibit highlights include:
· One of the first coins struck in Northern Gaul in what is now France. It is made of gold and hand-struck between 100 and 50 B.C. by the ancient Parissi tribe. Paris is named after that tribe.
· A specially made 20 Francs gold coin depicting Napoleon Bonaparte that was struck in 1815 during the brief Hundred Days period when he returned to France from exile.
The owner of The Tyrant Collection, including these rare French coins, wants to remain anonymous while he shares portions of the extensive collection with the public for the coins educational and historic value, explained Goldberg.
