Since 2019, Monnaie de Paris honors and revisits the natural symbols of French coinage.
Obverse side of the coin:
This exceptional €10,000 gold coin elegantly combines the three natural numismatic essences of the collection. The strength and longevity of the oak tree rubs shoulders with the perseverance and glory of the laurel and the wealth and abundance of the wheat. Here they are engraved for eternity, the conclusion of the "Natures de France" series. The upper part is surrounded by the motto of the French Republic: "Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité". A beaded outline of the coin brings a touch of elegance to the coin and reminds us of the old graphics of French coins.
Reverse side of the coin:
The reverse side is common to the series. It presents the three symbols of nature used in this collection: the oak, the laurel and the wheat. A Hexagon is inserted in the design, representing France. The laurel branch on the left and the oak branch on the right adorn this hexagon. The ear of wheat is in the center of the reverse. This one is crowned by the face value and surrounded by the mention "République Française". The engraving marks are visible on both sides of the stem of the laurel and oak branches. A beaded outline of the coin brings a touch of elegance to the latter and recalls the old graphics of French coins.
The purpose of the Institutional Gold and Silver Euros series is to highlight a strong numismatic symbol. For the next three years, we have chosen to honour three natural symbols whose engravings have shaped the French monetary landscape: the Oak, the Laurel and the Wheat.
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 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.
