    Description

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

     
    The Sower series presents the most historically significant coins of France’s history. In 2020, the New Franc is honored. Created under General de Gaulle's directive, the New Franc was introduced to stop the devaluation of the Franc and to facilitate the convertibility of the currency, allowing France to participate fully in the launch of the major European Community construction project.
    The reverse evokes the great monetary reform of the Fifth Republic with General de Gaulle, the prescriber of this new currency. The obverse and reverse of the new francs are then presented with a highlight on the Marianne of the pre-1914 coins, synonymous with economic renewal.
    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.
