    • 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.

    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.
