    Description

    On the occasion of the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games, Monnaie de Paris pays tributes to these renowned international competitions through a collection honoring sport, its values, the athletes but also the host country’s heritage. Olympism and Paralympism are will be highlighted on those products, struck in France in our art workshops.

    In 2022, a series is dedicted to Team France.

    The obverse of the coins presents the new emblem of the French team : a rooster seen from above, with a determinate stare, representing the French spirit, dynamic and breaking the codes.

    The reverse is separated in two : on one hand, the emblem of the rooster is placed in an all-over pattern and on the other hand, several fragments which are emblematic to the French Team universe are represented.

    The Collection

    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.

    Our craftman

    • THE ENAMELLER

      Our creations are enamelled using a rare technique known as grand feu enamelling. Another workshop sends the enameller a decoration, piece of jewellery or struck medal with hollow spaces on its surface. Using a dip pen, needle or brush, the enameller fills these hollows with enamel, which they have prepared themselves. The fixing of the variously coloured enamel powders is controlled by short, successive firings at 900 degrees.

    • 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 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.
