    Monnaie de Paris pays tribute to the major aircraft along History
    Developed in the 1930s, the Spitfire took its first flight on the 5th of March 1936 and made History when it enabled United-Kingdom to win an aerial battle against the German forces. 

    The front shows two Supermarine Spitfires flying at full speed during an operation to protect the English coast around Douvres.
    The reverse, common to the series, features the profiles of two pilots, symbolising the different eras and types of use: civil and military.

    • 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.
