    Thismedal was produced at the first time in 1932. The creator of this original drawing is François Cogné (1876-1952), sculptor and creator also of the statueof Georges Clemenceau in Les Champs Elysées. The medal is inspired by this statue. Monnaie de Paris ordered this medal which integrated the catalogue of the general collection of the medals , under the Third Republic. The artist chose to represent Georges Clemenceau walking, dressed in a country style with a long coat while he was visiting the soldiers in the battle front. A dense fog symbolizes the harsch climate but also the doubts and the difficulties the soldiers had to cope with. On the right, the birth and death dates of Georges Clemenceau.

    On the reverse, a War memorial and a memorial plaque  pay tribute to Georges Clémenceau. The engraving « Edition du Centenaire 1918-2018 » appears on the bottom of the medal.

    • 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.
