Une pièce belle épreuve est une pièce obtenue au moyen de coins et de flans spécialement préparés et de conditions de frappe particulières, de sorte que les motifs de gravure ressortent avec une grande netteté et que la surface est sans défaut. Les fonds de la gravure sont extrêmement brillants, les reliefs sont matés.

    • THE MEDAL MINTER

      The medal minter transforms a blank into a medal, alternating between striking to bring out the relief and annealing to return the metal to a more malleable state. The blank is struck as many times as necessary, depending on the diameter, depth and detail of the engraving. Finally, surface treatments are applied to enhance the finished piece

    • 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.
