A bronze commemorative medal representing Napoleon's coronation as "King of Italy" on May 23, 1805. The face of the medal has the bust of Napoleon in relief wearing a laurel wreath with the words "Napoleon Empereur" encircling his image.. There is also the minter's signature for Denon, Andrieu and Jaley. The reverse has the imperial crown in relief with the words "Napoleon Roi d'Italie" as well as an inscription "Couronne a Milan, Le XXIII Mai, MDCCCV" noting the date of his coronation. At some point, someone decided to mount the medal as a bottle opener. It is in very good condition and measures 2 inches in diameter.. I have attached an advertisement from a coin dealer selling the medallion alone
