100 euro - 20 years of the starter kit
n 2021, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Starter Kit and the introduction of the first euros, Monnaie de Paris has decided to pay tribute to the sower from a new angle. The reverse side of this 100€ coin represents two different sowers: The first one, in the background, is the original sower from the french engraver Oscar Roty, the one found on the 1 Franc coins since 1898. The second, the one in the foreground, is the original face of the woman who inspired the engraver, Rosalinda Pesce. This is the first time she appears on a coin. We also find on this face 20 stars in the background representing the 20 years of the Starter Kit. The sun is represented on this coin as a reminder of the francs, the currency preceding the euro. The French flag appears in heraldic form at the furrows. On the face, we find the 40 coins contained in the original starter kit from 2021. The "€" symbol is also taken from the original visual of the pouch.
