Commemorative Euro Coins

2011  5 coin commemorating the year of the rabbit.  On the verso is Jean de La Fontaine with the 12 animals of the zodiac.  $32 from Numest in Estonia through Ebay, Dec. '18.

This is a nice presentation of La Fontaine.  Apparently commemorative coins are a way for governments to raise funds.  This one comes in a lovely holder.  I am not even sure I can figure out how to open the holder or close it again, and so I will not!
