A 68mm bronze medal of the Paris Mint, struck to commemorate the 1881 Baptism of the King of Rome. Rev: the Emperor holding his infant son above the baptism well, winged lion throne behind. Obv: right-facing portrait of Napoleon, "Napoleon Empereur Et Roi" above, very small text below: "J.P. Droz Fecit / AN. 1809". Edge-impressed "CUIVRE".
