    Description

    • Tribute paid to the French museums' most beautiful pieces of art
    • Monna Lisa, the most famous artwork of Leonardo da Vinci

    Monnaie de Paris pays tribute to the major masterpieces of French museums.

    The obverse shows the famous masterpiece of Leonardo da Vinci. The portrait of Monna Lisa in close-up, in the middle of the coin. In the background, we can see the portrait’s frame with the name of the masterpiece, “La Joconde”, and the name of the artist, “Leonard de Vinci”. At the top on the left, “500 ans” evokes the passing away anniversary of Leonardo da Vinci in 2019. The stamp “Chefs d’oeuvre des Musées” has been added on the right side. 

    The reverse is common to the series. It depicts several views of many major French museums. An interior view of the Musée d’Orsay, on the top left, is recognizable by its distinctive clock. Beside that is a view of the façade of the Louvre as seen from the Napoleon courtyard where the pyramid is located. Below these two elements, a fresco shows the Hôtel Salé, which houses the Picasso Museum. The lower portion of the reverse side features a view of the façade of Hôtel Biron, the current Rodin Museum, and above, the famous Centre Pompidou stairway. The face value and the words “République Française” are also inscribed on the reverse side.

    The Collection

    Launched in 2017, this series pays tribute in the biggest masterpieces of our museums and commemorates the trends and influences of our History - Renaissance, Baroque, Impressionism...

    The Museums' Masterpieces series, or when art meets art. Every year it is a great pleasure to pay tribute to such extraordinary artworks, but it is also a challenge for engraving! That of sublimating these artworks as best we can and using our ancestral methods to translate the artistic power and subliminal effects of these immense original artists.
