    Description

    On the occasion of the 3rd anniversary of Johnny Hallyday's passing away and the 60th anniversary of his first title, the Monnaie de Paris has decided to pay tribute to this major artist through a new range of monetary and non-monetary products. This collection highlights the showman, the outstanding guitarist and the great biker that Johnny was. The blister pack features a portrait of Johnny Hallyday, his eyes overflowing with determination and passion.

     

    The obverse of this coin pays tribute to the greatness and longevity of Johnny Hallyday's career. The two portraits separated by the curve of a guitar represent the artist at two moments of his life, which was dedicated to music and to the stage. The acronym "RF" is also stylized with guitar strings. The inscription "60 ans de souvenirs" underlines the long career of the France’s favourite rocker and refers to his cult song "Souvenirs, Souvenirs".

     

    The reverse of this coin represents two objects that gave rhythm to the life of Johnny: the guitar and the motorcycle. Motorcyclist at heart, the artist's favorite vehicle is subtly integrated on the guitar's body. The strings of the guitar form his name to symbolize his deep bond with this instrument. 

    The Collection

    On the occasion of the second anniversary of the death of Johnny Hallyday, who died on December 5, 2017, Monnaie de Paris pays tribute to this monument of French rock with a range of new products. Collection coins, minisets, mini medals, paperweight medals and a silver signet rong that highlight the singer, the born performer and the biker.

    • 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.
