    • 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. 

    DAKOTA

    Plane designed in 1936 by aircraft manufacturer McDonell Douglas, it was used for air transport, in particular during D-Day in 1944. One of the plane’s most famous missions was the Berlin airlift set up in 1948 to supply West Berlin, which was cut off by the Soviet Blockade. 2018 is the 70th anniversary of the event.

    On the obverse, a Dakota flies over Berlin and the Brandebourg gate where children wait for supplies and wave to the pilots. On the sides, the Berlin Airlift monument, with a chain of small Dakotas, recalling the great humane operation. In the center, a quote from President JF Kennedy, paying tribute to the Berlin Airlift in 1963.

    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.
