    The Summer Olympic games that will take place in Paris are the opportunity, for Monnaie de Paris to celebrate this major international competition through a series celebrating Sport, its values, the athletes but also the heritage of the host country. Olympism and Paralympism will be highlighted on those products, struck in France in our art workshops.

    Such an event is an opportunity for the Monnaie de Paris to continue to renew itself to offer even more beautiful and innovative products. For the first time, the institute's presses are minting hexagonal coins, in tribute to the French territory.

    The obverse of these coins shows the Genie throwing a discus, overhanging the athletics stadium of the games. The Arc de Triomphe can be seen in the background, symbolising the city of Paris.

    This design is also featured on the commemorative €2 coins, available only in Proof and Brilliant Uncirculated quality.

    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.
