Made a small silver purchase today, nothing special just some ol' cheap standard circulation coins, from Canada, Portugal and Sweden. You will get the chance to enjoy them in my unboxing in a couple days when I receive them.

Anyways, I did something I usually don't. I bought a non silver coin from the same seller. Imo it was so hilarious I just had to own it. I paid 1 euro for it, probably a bit of a steal but hey, it was worth it just for the lulz. 😆 According to numista, a more fair price would be 50 cents .

Just look at this ugly nose


A commemorative 1 french Franc, minted for the 30th Anniversary of the French Fifth Republic.

The Fifth Republic (French: Cinquième République) is France's current republican system of government. It was established on 4 October 1958 by Charles de Gaulle under the Constitution of the Fifth Republic. source

So yeah, the bad boy depicted in the coin is Charles de Gaulle:

Charles André Joseph Marie de Gaulle (22 November 1890 – 9 November 1970) was a French army officer and statesman who led Free France against Nazi Germany in World War II and chaired the Provisional Government of the French Republic from 1944 to 1946 in order to restore democracy in France. In 1958, he came out of retirement when appointed President of the Council of Ministers (Prime Minister) by President René Coty. He rewrote the Constitution of France and founded the Fifth Republic after approval by referendum. He was elected President of France later that year, a position to which he was reelected in 1965 and held until his resignation in 1969. source

Can't wait to hold this sexy old dude in my hands. After all, you know what they say about guys with big noses 😏😌😱
