    Description

    The year 2020 was marked by the global health crisis related to covid-19. This event has disrupted our lives to a greater or lesser extent. Nevertheless, this ordeal has often been a vector of cohesion and national unity.

    In order not to forget the positive impulses that were born and to capitalize on the future, we owe it to ourselves to come together. As always in health issues, research is an essential key to the struggle we are waging. After having thanked the medical staff and all the people mobilized at the heart of this crisis by creating the medal “Merci”, Monnaie de Paris is continuing its action by creating a €2 commemorative collection to support research.

    For every €2 Medical Research coin purchased, Monnaie de Paris commits to donate €2 to Fondation de France.

    The obverse of the coin represents the figuration of the human in union, represented by a face inscribed in a sphere. It faces the infinitely small, represented by fragments of DNA inscribed in a circle. By its oblique axis, this allegory represents the research and its intelligence dominating the infinitely small; studying it and triumphing over the diseases. 

    Monnaie de Paris has developed 3 blister packs that bring out the main feelings that emerge from this crisis .

    The blister "Union" put forwards the core values that have emerged during this crisis. The words dévouement, engagement, bienveillance, protection and générosité create the word UNION.

    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.
