    Description

    An icon in the combat for women’s rights, Simone Veil, born Jacob, left us in June 2017 at the age of 89. After surviving deportation to Auschwitz, she went on to become one of the most important actors in Europe’s building. She was the first elected president of the European Parliament from 1979 to 1982. She symbolizes the depenalization of the abortion she fought for with the law bearing her name voted in 1975. In 2008, she is elected at the French Academy.
    She will receive the rare honour of a burial the 1st July at the Pantheon in Paris.

    The obverse of this €2 coin displays a portrait of Simone Veil; her deportation registration number appears on her collar. The background depicts the European Parliament on which her key dates, name and RF are inscribed. The yeardate is on the right-hand side, whereas the mintmarks are on the lower part.

    The reverse of the coin is that of a standard €2 coin, found throughout all countries of the eurozone. The face value “€2” appears in front of a map of Europe.

    This coin is sold with box, certificate and sheath. 

    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.
