    Indeed! A neat assortment.

    Also cool to have a @Stork sighting.
  5. Great idea for a collection, it covers some important history. I have always liked the coins of French India but sadly I do not have any - yet :D. I do have a match for your Napoleon 10 centimes though! France-1808-I-10c-O-crop.jpg France-1808-I-10c-R-crop.jpg

    Cool start to the set! At one time, I was hoping to get an example from each French colony. I got quite a few, but decided to focus on Morocco:

    And when @physics-fan3.14 says he focused on Morocco he is telling the truth! He has an amazing set!

    I got distracted by the 4th Republic dependencies and have a rather large number of them. Even started on the piefort/essais but ended up selling off those as that was just to much for this project. I've got most of what I need, but haven't been working on it of late.

    My exception to the Piefot/Essais though is St. Pierre and Miquelon. I am proud to say I have every coin of the 4th Republic for them. A completed set! All six of them :D. Listed as a custom set over at NGC, with photos.

    Back to the OP though - where are you planning on taking this set next? A set of rulers? A colonial set? Further back in history?

    After completing this set, I since then moved on to ancients, and I'm now in the process of putting together a coin from each century as far back as I can, hopefully within this year!

    That too is an eventual goal with my Eclectic Box collection.

    Very nice set!

    I started studying the Napoleonic Wars a couiple of years ago. As I learned more, I thought it would be kind of cool to put together a set of coins from all of the different countries/kingdoms.

    So far, I have Great Britain, Sweden, Poland, Prussia, the U.S., France (
    France 1st Republic, France Consulship, France 1st Empire). There were seven Coalitions, and it turns out there are over 30 countries involved in the conflicts from 1792 to 1815. Some countries changed alliances as the conflicts progressed.

    Turns out to be quite a donting undertaking, but I am learning much, and totally enjoying the journey.
