French Excellence - Dior 5000€ Pink Gold Coin Proof quality yeardate 2021

    Description

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


    A prestigious alliance that pays tribute to the know-how of the oldest French institution as well as to the floral trail and the beauty of the bottle of the first-born fragrance created by Christian Dior.


    Using the design of the 2kg gold coin on the obverse and reverse, but this time on a round shape, the 1kg gold coin only has 18 copies minted.


    This exceptional coin pays tribute to Dior’s famous symbols: the houndstooth, the roses, the couture bow.


    Here again, transparency was beautifully conveyed into metal through the use of engraving, polishing and sandblasting to obtain larger than life textures.


    While the drawing of the bottle on a bed of roses glimpsed through a star-shaped window remains the same on the obverse as for the 2kg gold coin, the 1kg gold coin’s reverse is specific. Here, thanks to a technical innovation, the bow, an ornament Christian Dior frequently used, struk in pink gold, perfectly rounded, creates the illusion of a supple fabric with a regular grain, sealed on the obverse of the coin.

    The Collection

    Founded in 864, Monnaie of Paris is the oldest company in the world. It has cultivated tradition in the metal artworks for twelve centuries. As such, it is an associate member of Colbert Committee, gathering the greatest French luxury companies. In 2014, Monnaie of Paris is celebrating its 1150th anniversary. For this occasion, Monnaie of Paris is launching a new collection named "French Excellence". The aim is to highlight every year one of the art crafts that constitute the unique heritage of French luxury, by working with one major house belonging to Colbert Committee.

    La rencontre du métal et du parfum : un défi incroyable que nous avons relevé avec passion. J’ai souhaité exprimer la finesse de l’essence des fleurs chères à Christian Dior, ainsi que le touché et le tombé d’un tissu, hommage à son talent de couturier. C’est avec cet objectif en tête que nous avons pu réaliser cette série et particulièrement la monnaie de 2 kilos Or, une vraie prouesse technique et la première pièce d’un tel poids jamais frappée par la Monnaie de Paris.

    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.
