This series of The Little Prince coins are produced by Monnaie de Paris, France’s oldest continuously operating minting institution, founded in 864. This gold coin has a nominal value of 50€, 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 2015 The Little Prince 'What is essential is invisible' gold coin bears a modern yet classically inspired design. With an impressive fineness of 920 and a timeless look, the obverse of this coin depicts a scene from the renowned French children’s book The Little Prince, or ‘Le Petit Prince’, as it reads on the coin. The drawing references a scene in the novella, with the quotation, "And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye." The reverse, common to the series, features an illustration of the Little Prince, along with novella’s title around the outside in French, English, German and Chinese. This series of coins uncovers the surreal universe of ‘The Little Prince’ filled with friendships, mysteries and disappointments.
