    Description

    • Gold and Silver Euros coin, guaranteed face value
    • 900 Silver
    • A French symbol magnified by a modern and graphical treatment

    Since 2017 and after the Sower, Hercules and the Rooster, Monnaie de Paris pays tribute to a major symbol of the French Republic : Marianne. 

    Marianne is a symbol of the French  Republic, an allegory of freedom. She is wearing a Phrygian cap, a cockade  and is accompanied by flying birds.

    In 2018, she illustrates Equality symbolised by the letter « E » of the word Equality. It turns into the equal sign which links men and women with each other. Equality of the sexes is a key driver of the Republic. 

    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.
