The Coco Chanel Coin Designed By Karl Lagerfeld
Coin collectors and fashionistas can now have the same object of desire. To celebrate Coco Chanel's 125th birthday, Karl Lagerfeld has designed a €5 coin. The coin is a limited edition which features a Coco Chanel portrait on one side and the iconic Chanel quilting on the other. Lagerfeld's signature appears on the front of the Coco coin. It has been approved by the French Mint and is offered in gold and silver. The gold version costs €5,900, and there are only 99 of them in existence. The silver version cost €45 and there are 11,900 of them. The coins go on sale in December.
