    Description

    Throughout this collection, Monnaie de Paris bring together symbols of the Games and of France to immortalise their encounter.

    2024 marks the arrival of the Olympic and Paralympic Games in France. It was obvious for Monnaie de Paris to highlight them once again through their representatives: the mascots. These fun and friendly little Phrygian hats are already familiar to the French and embody the spirits of the Games. This year, they symbolise the Games as they arrive and spread throughout France. A perfect reason to showcase the natural and architectural heritage that make the country beautiful.

    On this coin, the Arc de Triomphe is the central element of the decor. All around it, balloons, fireworks and musical notes symbolize a festive atmosphere. The Olympic Games mascot, wearing sunglasses and headphones, uses the monument as a mixing desk.

    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.
