The mascot is a meaningful symbol of France's image and an absolute symbol of freedom. It is very expressive, with an endearing personality and full of energy. It speaks to everyone and embodies the Games. The Phrygian cap comes to life and is animated for the first time on French Republic coins.
The Olympic Mascot is highlighted on this coinset. It is part of a tribe of phrygian caps, who came to help French people to conduct their revolution through sport.
Monnaie de Paris celebrates the Olympic and Paralympic Games with various innovative and new collections over several years, showcasing the sportsmen and the Olympic spirit. Collection coins, commemorative 2€, gold and silver Euro or medallions, these collections put the spotlight on the disciplines, places and icons of the Olympics.
