This series of French Excellence Baccarat Crystal coins are produced by Monnaie de Paris, France’s oldest continuously operating minting institution, founded in 864. This silver coin has a nominal value of 200€, however they are traded at a much higher price on the bullion coin market due to the state-of-the-art know-how of the Monnaie de Paris craftsmen who are able to expertly and creatively engrave precious metals.

This 2014 French Excellence Baccarat Crystal 200€ 1oz gold coin bears a modern and decadent design, with an impressive fineness of 999 and a unique look. Monnaie de Paris and Baccarat teams have worked on a concept mixing metal and crystal, promoting the high level of requirements of craftsmen from those two houses to celebrate the 250th birthday of Baccarat, a renowned French manufacturer of fine crystal glassware. Featured on the obverse is a geometric engraving of a glass blower, as well as '250' to represent the anniversary being celebrated, with the 0 represented by an ornate red crystal octagon, the emblem of the brand. On the reverse is the intricate and forward-thinking pattern that was on the pedestal table ordered by Tsar Alexander II from Baccarat in 1867 for the Tsarina, alongside the brand's logo in the centre.
