AS BEFITS A LEGEND
Napoleon is widely regarded as one of history’s great military minds, successfully leading campaigns on land and sea that saw his Empire expand across Europe in the early years of the 19th Century. After defeat in Belgium Napoleon was exiled to St Helena in 1815, at that time a peaceful island owned by The East India Company. It was primarily used as a stopping off point on voyages between India and the UK, a place where its officials led an undisturbed life in the tropics.
Our Napoleon themed gold and silver coins celebrate the life, times and stories surrounding this formidable character.
