    Description

    The most beautiful avenue in the World.

    Linking the Concorde Place to the Arc of Triumph, the Champs-Elysées Avenue stretches over nearly 2 km in the heart of Paris. In the 17th century, Le Nôtre, Louis XIV's gardener, laid the first stones in this marshy area. It was then part of the ascent of what is known as "the most beautiful avenue in the world".
    One of the must-see places to visit in Paris, the most beautiful avenue in the world welcomes about 300,000 visitors a day. The Champs-Elysées Avenue is full of culture and activities. You can admire the monuments, go shopping or vibrate during events. Every year, the avenue hosts the 14th July parade, the arrival of the Tour de France or the Christmas illuminations.
    The Champs-Elysées are as lively by day as by night. Restaurants, shops, monuments and clubs are all jewels to be discovered and make this avenue a myth. To end the visit in beauty, the ascent of the Arc of Triumph offers a spectacular panoramic view of Paris. 

    The obverse shows a view of the Champs-Elysées towards the Arc of Triumph. In order to highlight Paris as a city of light, the most beautiful avenue in the world has been represented at night, when its trees are adorned with Christmas lights. The flame of the unknown soldier, which celebrates its 100th anniversary in 2020, shines at the foot of the Arc of Triumph. The Concorde obelisk is visible in the foreground and shows the angle of the shot.
    In order to magnify this collection, the coins are decorated with selective gold deposits highlighting the illuminations. 

    The reverse is the common reverse of the Paris’ Treasures series. It offers a modern view of the map of Paris and its districts represented by small pyramids. Above the map of Paris is the name of the series. Below, the face value and the vintage are shown.

    Our craftman

    • THE ENAMELLER

      Our creations are enamelled using a rare technique known as grand feu enamelling. Another workshop sends the enameller a decoration, piece of jewellery or struck medal with hollow spaces on its surface. Using a dip pen, needle or brush, the enameller fills these hollows with enamel, which they have prepared themselves. The fixing of the variously coloured enamel powders is controlled by short, successive firings at 900 degrees.

    • THE MEDAL MINTER

      The medal minter transforms a blank into a medal, alternating between striking to bring out the relief and annealing to return the metal to a more malleable state. The blank is struck as many times as necessary, depending on the diameter, depth and detail of the engraving. Finally, surface treatments are applied to enhance the finished piece

    • 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.
