This coin celebrates the 100 Years since the birth of François Mitterrand.
François Maurice Adrien Marie Mitterrand was a French politician who was President of France from 1981 to 1995, the longest time in the office of any French president. As a leader of the Socialist Party, he was the first figure from the left elected President under the Fifth Republic.
Beyond making the French left electable, François Mitterrand presided over the rise of the Socialist Party to the dominance of the left, and the decline of the once-mighty Communist Party (as a share of the popular vote in the first presidential round, the Communists shrank from a peak of 21.27% in 1969 to 8.66% in 1995, at the end of François Mitterrand's second term).
Depicts a profile of a pensive François Mitterrand. Adjacent is his personal emblem of a half oak/half olive tree. Above are the dates marking the centenary of his birth ('1916' and '2016') and his name. At the bottom, the indication of the issuing country 'RF'. The outer ring contains the twelve stars of the European Union.
