    Description

    The year 2022 marks two major European events. The first of January 2022 celebrates the 20th anniversary of the introduction of the euro, replacing the franc and becoming at the same time the European currency of the member countries of the euro zone. In addition, France will hold the Presidency of the Council of the European Union in 2022, 13 years after its last Presidency. It is in this conjunction of major events that the change of the national face of the French €1 and €2 currencies is taking place, two decades after the appearance of the European currency.


    This quadriptych in Brilliant Uncirculated quality contains the four €1 and €2 coins of the 2021 and 2022 yeardates.


    This set features the new design of the €1 and €2 circulation coins in 2022. The juxtaposition of the denominations allows us to observe the evolution of the national sides, designed almost 20 years apart by Joaquin Jiménez, General Engraver of the Monnaie de Paris.


    The two €1 coins are produced exclusively for this series as well as for the Proof and BU series 2021 and 2022.

    The Collection

    Born of the desire to unify European territories and facilitate trade with a single currency, the euro was introduced by the signatory states of the Maastricht Treaty on 7 February 1992. Officially put into circulation at midnight on 1 January 2022, the euro sounded the death knell for the franc. Monnaie de Paris is celebrating the second part of the euro's anniversary in 2022 with a collection of gold and silver coins.

    Le 20ème anniversaire de l’euro est un évènement majeur pour le monde de la numismatique. Il m’a semblé important de rendre hommage au franc, qui céda sa place à la devise commune européenne en janvier 2002. On retrouve donc sur les monnaies 20 ans de l’euro un rameau d’olivier, attribut du franc, qui s’exprime 20 ans plus tard sous la forme d’un arbre sur la nouvelle face des monnaies de 1€ et 2€.

    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.
