    Description

    • 10€ silver coin, guaranteed face value  
    • Celebration of the centenary of the First World War end 
    Launched in 2014 for the centenary of the Great War, the series highlights the lives of men on the front and women behing the lines ; all were actors in the conflict that caused a serious breaking point in the 20th century. 

    The obverse displays the bugler that called the cease-fire. The soldier wears multiple flags along with a Cornflower and a Poppy. The Arc de Triomphe is in the background, under which a returning soldier holds his child in his arms. 

    The reverse of the coin shows its face value decorated with an oak branch and a laurel branch, evoking the Euro sign. The motifs on the reverse side are framed with a set of lines representing France's hexagonal shape. 

    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.
