Aviation and history - Transall 50€ Silver coin Proof quality yeardate 2018


    • Collection coin with proof quality yeardate 2018
    • Highlighting the major aircraft along its adventure

    Monnaie de Paris pays tribute to the major aircraft along its adventure. Every year two planes are honored. 

    The name, a contraction of Transport and Allianz, on its own symbolizes the Franco-German collaboration that developed this transport plane in 1963. The sturdy aircraft, used by many countries, will celebrate its 55th anniversary in 2018.

    On the obverse, a Transall flies over Mont Saint-Michel, dropping parachutists over the bay, symbolizing the use of the aircraft for the transport of several generations of parachutists.

    The reverse, common to the series, features the profiles of two pilots, symbolising the different eras and types of use: civil and military. In the sky are several aircrafts, also representing the different eras and uses, in a tribute to the history of aviation. 
    The face value is inscribed on the bottom left of the reverse side, as is the symbol “RF”.

    Our craftman


      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 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.
