History of the coin
The French invasion of Russia - known in Russia as the War of the Homeland of 1812 and in France as the Russia Campaign - began on 24 June 1812 when Napoleon's Grande Armée crossed the Neman to attack and defeat the Russian army. Napoleon was hoping to force Tsar Alexander I of Russia to give up on trade with British merchants via representatives and put pressure on the United Kingdom to enforce peace. The official political goal of the campaign was the liberation of Poland from the Russian threat. Napoleon called the campaign the Second Polish War to gain Poland as an ally and have a political justification for his actions.
