History of United States independence

Starting in 2020, Monnaie de Paris will retrace the history of American Independence through a collection of coins. The designs of the coins are directly inspired by historical products published by Monnaie de Paris: old medals from our archives.

In this collection, today's engraving workshop pays tribute to its 18th century counterparts! The difficulty lies in transcribing the volumes of old medals by transposing them onto contemporary coins, a real challenge and a symbol of our age-old know-how.

Engraver word

Emblematic coins

The engraving of these coins is taken from old medals of Monnaie de Paris which brings authenticity to these coins. Some of them are octagonal, a format that is a technical feat in terms of cutting, and others are struck in high relief on each side with a patina, a novelty at Monnaie de Paris!
