Centenary of the end of World War I: 1918 - 2018

For the centenary of the end of World War I (1914-1918), Monnaie de Paris celebrates this historical event with a series of coins including a circulating coin of €2, silver face value coins and collector coins with the series “Men and Women in the Great War”. The coins honour peace and the end of the conflict.

The ¼ Oz Peace coin, is the first Fairmined gold coin issued by Monnaie de Paris. It figures a commitment of our institution to source Fairtrade gold. Fairmined is a label which guarantees a fair and responsible gold extraction. It attests that this gold is produced by autonomous small scale craft mines. The metal’s price is guaranteed at a fair price plus a premium for the local development. It is also protects the environment and the working conditions of the miners. Fairmined supplies gold to companies selling specific labelled products.
