- Celebrating 75 years of Peace in Europe
- Unique Collaboration between two artists
- Coins in Fairmined gold
In 2020, Monnaie de Paris is putting forward a philosophical vision of peace through the collaboration of two artists: Eugene Daub and Joaquin Jimenez. Eugene Daub made the obverse of the coins, and Joaquin Jimenez the reverse. These two sides then answer each other and dialogue with each other.
The obverse was designed by the american sculptor Eugene Daub. On the 50€ gold denomination, a portrait of a woman in profile is visible. From this woman emanates doves surrounding her like a halo. The reverse was drawn by Joaquin Jimenez and is common to the series. It represents three doves in perspective taking flight. These doves symbolize peace. The flight of these birds is highlighted by a V echoing victory.
