    Description

    • The History of France revisited through its ancient currencies
    • First wave of the complete series of 18 pieces of 10€.

    Monnaie de Paris has been minting the coins of the French since the year 864. Its treasures, which belong to the heritage, and its know-how are at the origin of this collection which, from Roman times to today, retraces the History of France in about twenty coins.

    The Louis XVI coin represents a 30 sols coin created in 1791 under the constitutional monarchy. It depicts the profile of Louis XVI and for the first time the words "Kings of the Francois" instead of the Latin inscriptions that had previously appeared on coins.

    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.
