    Description

    • Celebration of an important event of the hsitory
    • Technical innovation for the resin

    2019 celebrates the 50 years of the First Step on the Moon. Named Apollo 11, this mission has been settled by the NASA. It was organised on the 20th of july in 1969. For the first time, humans landed safely on the moon. It was a victory for the United States and for Mankind. Among the crew members, was Neil Armstrong. This man was both the captain of the mission and Lunar Module pilot.

    On the 10 € Silver coin, the scene is sublimated by the blue resin which is inserted in a very large hollowed area. Each coin is perforated leaving the scenery as suspended in the middle of the blue, representing the Universe and its infinite expanse.
    A source of light placed behind this blue surface gives all the brightness, the depth and the sublimation of the earth clear view to this novel coin. The handcrafted aspect of this coin is also to be emphasized, each 10 € coin is unique with a deposit of resin of its own, echoing the perpetual movements of the stars in the Universe.
    There is literally not a face and reverse but a Moon sight and an Earth sight.

    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.
