    Description

    On the occasion of the 90th anniversary of his birth, Monnaie de Paris pays tribute to Jacques Chirac. 

    The drawing takes up a solemn profile of President Jacques Chirac looking to the future. It is surrounded by several symbols representing his action: a euro symbol, as sign of its involvement in the introduction of the Euro and his European spirit, and a French flag represented in heraldic colours, itself embellished with the RF as a reference to his presidency. His dates as well as his name are inserted in the acronym of the Euro. The mintmarks as well as the yeardate fit into the design.

    The coin is sold in a case.

    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.
