    Description

    In 2023, France will host its second Rugby World Cup, following the 2007 tournament. This competition is the most prestigious rugby tournament in the world, and has been held every four years since 1987.  To prepare for this major sporting event, Monnaie de Paris, in collaboration with the Rugby World Cup 2023, has launched a series of collector coins celebrating the sport.

    This series focuses on the international competition that will take place in France from September 8th to October 28th 2023. The tournament matches will take place in several cities in France, from Lille to Nice, Paris and Toulouse.

    The obverse of the coin depicts a rugby player in mobius with a ball in his hand in the centre. Under his feet, the field has been transformed into a globe marked by parallels and meridians. A starry sky and two oval planets in reference to the rugby ball surround the Earth as an allegory to the rugby universe. As on a field, the posts frame the design. The words "Rugby World Cup France 2023" and « RF » surrounds the scene.

    The reverse of the €2 coin features the face value and the shape of the European continent.

    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.
