    Description

    20 years after its launch, the Monnaie de Paris is celebrating the second part of the euro's anniversary with a collection of gold and silver coins. For this occasion and for the first time in Europe, the national obverse of the €1 and €2 coins is getting a makeover and will feature a new design by Joaquin Jiménez, engraver of the "Tree of Life", which has been present on both denominations until now.



    This miniset celebrates the 20th anniversary of the introduction of the euro. It contains the 8 French circulating coins dated 2022 and minted in Brilliant Uncirculated quality.This miniset contains the new €1 and €2 coins, designed by Joaquin Jiménez, Engraver General of the Monnaie de Paris.


    The new €1 coin is produced exclusively for this series as well as for the BE 2022 series.

    The Collection

    Born of the desire to unify European territories and facilitate trade with a single currency, the euro was introduced by the signatory states of the Maastricht Treaty on 7 February 1992. Officially put into circulation at midnight on 1 January 2022, the euro sounded the death knell for the franc. Monnaie de Paris is celebrating the second part of the euro's anniversary in 2022 with a collection of gold and silver coins.

    Le 20ème anniversaire de l’euro est un évènement majeur pour le monde de la numismatique. Il m’a semblé important de rendre hommage au franc, qui céda sa place à la devise commune européenne en janvier 2002. On retrouve donc sur les monnaies 20 ans de l’euro un rameau d’olivier, attribut du franc, qui s’exprime 20 ans plus tard sous la forme d’un arbre sur la nouvelle face des monnaies de 1€ et 2€.

    Our craftman

    • THE ENGRAVER

      Trained at the best schools, they have the years of experience behind them necessary to master all aspects of the craft. Using industrial oil-based modelling clay and working from a design executed freehand or with CAD software, they skilfully fashion a low relief model in order to enhance the engraving and the way it catches the light. They work alternately with concave and convex plaster moulds until satisfied they have achieved the best 3D rendering of the design.

    • THE MINTER

      The first minters began to ply their trade in France when striking with a hammer appeared in the 4th century BC. Nowdays, minsters use press instead of a hammer. Their knowledge of dies, engraving and metals, and their expertise - passed seamlessly down from one generation to the next for centuries - guarantees the excellence of their work.
