    Description

    • Celebrates a coin that have marked French History : the Germinal Franc
    • A coin that illustrates History

    The Sower series presents the most historically significant coins of France’s history. In 2019, the Germinal Franc is honoured. Created under Napoleon Bonaparte, the Germinal Franc was set up to revive the economic activity by fixing a certain weight of metal. 
    The reverse evokes both the Consulate and first Empire period with Napoleon Ist and the Great Army. The obverse and reverse of the Germinal franc are then represented with highlighting the significant facts at this time : the Legion of Honour, the bee and the laurel crown.  
    The obverse depicts Roty’s Sower in a more contemporary setting. 

    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.
