French excellence - dior

In 2021, the Monnaie de Paris joins forces with Dior to offer an exclusive collection combining their excellent know-how.

Having metal meet perfume was an incredible challenge. I wanted to express the fineness of the flowers’ essence that were dear to Christian Dior, but also the touch and the fall of a fabric, tribute to his fashion designer talent. It is with this aim that we have been able to realize this series and particularly the 2 kilos gold coin, a real technical achievement and a very first for Monnaie de Paris.

This unique collaboration highlights the aesthetic codes dear to the designer Christian Dior: the houndstooth, the couture bow and the iconic shape of the bottle, as well as his favorite star, not to mention the roses of Grasse that make up the Miss Dior fragrance.

Emblematic coins

Among this collection, the 10€ silver coin and 200€ gold coin are in the shape of the knot that's perfectly reproduce the illusion of the fabric thanks to the engraving and the volume. The reverse side of the coin represents the famous houndstooth emblematic of the house Dior.
