Napoleon Bonaparte, also known as Napoleon I, was a French military leader and emperor who conquered much of Europe in the early 19th Century.  Born on the island of Corsica, Napoleon rose quickly through the military ranks during the French Revolution.  After seizing political power in France in 1799, he crowned himself Emperor in 1804.  Ambitious, shrewd and a skilled military strategist, he successfully waged war against various coalitions of European nations and expanded his empire.  However, after a disastrous French invasion of Russia in 1812, Napoleon abdicated the throne two years later and was exiled to the island of Elba.
In February 1815, after less than a year in exile, Napoleon escaped Elba and sailed to France with a group of supporters.  In March he returned to Paris where he was welcomed by cheering crowds.  Louis XVIII fled and Napoleon began what became known as his Hundred Days campaign.  Upon his return to France, a coalition of allies (Austrians, British, Prussians and Russians), who considered the French Emperor an enemy began to prepare for war.  Napoleon raised a new army and planned to strike before the allies could launch a united attack against him.  In June 1815, Napoleon’s forces invaded Belgium, where British and Prussian troops were station.  Napoleon’s troops defeated the Prussians at the Battle of Ligny but two days later, on 18th June 1815 at the Battle of Waterloo, the French were crushed by the British with the assistance from the Prussians.  On 22nd June 1815 Napoleon was once again forced to abdicate.
In October 1815, Napoleon was exiled to the remote, British-held island of St Helena (which at the time was part of the British Overseas Territory which included Ascension Island).
The image on the coin is based a well-known portrait of Napoleon seated upon a rearing horse and is produced in striking High Relief.  The obverse of the coin carries an effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS.

I am 100% satisfied with the service from start to finish. The process of buying collectables is easy and the revamped website (for nearly a year now, I think) makes browsing and ordering so much faster and easier.\n\nEvery question/request made was answered quickly and professionally by ***. He is always really helpful.\n\nAreas of Improvement may include:\n[1] Increase the range of products, perhaps more from the Royal Mint (some Royal Mint products are not available at ISC) or from other private mints around the world, Mints in Europe, perhaps.\n\n[2] Offer free international shipping if the total purchase exceeds a certain amount.\n\n[3] Sell also 'non numismatic' silver and gold items. Perhaps Silver Britannia.\n\n[4] Perhaps a separate link to another page that shows only their low mintage items (less than 2,000)\n\nTo conclude:\nEven if ISC does nothing else at this point, their operation is fine and I get to buy certain items that I cannot buy elsewhere (or not as easy). \n\nI have bought from ISC a few times and I have not had a bad experience yet. I sure will be buying more in the future.
