    Description

    In 2021, Monnaie de Paris paid tribute to a major literary and cinematographic work by minting a collection of coins and medals dedicated to Harry and the wizarding world.

    To allow apprentice wizards and witches to start their collection, Monnaie de Paris is offering a limited quantity of a collector's album and three mini-medal packs at a preferential price. Each pack contain a random mini medal from the Harry Potter collection.

    There are 13 non-colored mini-medals featuring the main characters from the saga, 5 colored mini-medals adorned with the Hogwarts houses crests, and 2 gold-colored mini-medals featuring spells.

    Our craftman

    • THE MEDAL MINTER

      The medal minter transforms a blank into a medal, alternating between striking to bring out the relief and annealing to return the metal to a more malleable state. The blank is struck as many times as necessary, depending on the diameter, depth and detail of the engraving. Finally, surface treatments are applied to enhance the finished piece

    • 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.
