While a large number of medals have been issued by the government of France over the centuries, legal tender commemorative coinage only began in 1982, with the issue of ten franc piece commemorating Léon Gambetta. Soon there were other issues, and by the 1990s, there was a profusion of silver coins commemorating many events.
