Cyrano de Bergerac is cashing in and his Broadway return hasn't even opened yet. The large-nosed hero from Edmond Rostand's play is featured on two collector coins released from The Monnaie de Paris -- the Parisian Mint that issues such items for the French government -- on September 18.
Part of the collector series "Great characters of literature," the coins – one gold, one silver – feature an image of Cyrano declaring love for his beloved Roxanne on one side, and an image of Rostand on the other. The gold coin has a worth of 50 Euro, while the silver has a face value of 10 Euro.
