    Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris receives more than 13 million visitors a year from around the world. It is the most visited monument in Europe. In 2019, it suffered a terrible fire that destroyed a big part of the cathedral. Monnaie de Paris wishes to contribute to the reconstruction of this major monument of the French History.

The obverse of the coin pays tribute to the architecture of this exceptional cathedral by depicting its most distinguishable features: the gargoyles, the towers and the centre of the rose window. “15/04/2019 Reconstruction” and “Notre-Dame de Paris” are written, evoking the help of Monnaie de Paris for the reconstruction. 

    The face value, the yeardate 2019 and the UNESCO logo are featured on the reverse.

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.
