It is a great design and it's a low mintage coin. An underappreciated coin, too, IMHO.

Lions do not show often on French coins and it may be a surprise that the lion is actually one of the (more rarely used) symbols of the French Republic. The more well known symbol of the Republic, Marianne, occasionally wears a buckle with a lion head - like on this 1947 piastre from the Indochinese Federation (before the war: French Indochina).

Great examples!

The lion head on the 1947 Piastre is especially impressive and subtle.
