    Description

    • Gold and silver coin, guaranteed value
    • Silver 900/1000
    • A French symbol magnified by a modern and graphical treatment

    After the Sower, Hercules, the Rooster and Marianne, Monnaie de Paris pays tribute to a new series from 2020 to 2022 : Nature of France. This last one highlights the beauty of the nature through three strong numismatic symbols : the oak, the laurel and the wheat.

    The 2020 year promotes the Oak. Synonym of strength and longevity, the Oak is both a liberty and happiness symbol for the French Republic and by definition a key numismatic element.

    The Collection

    The purpose of the Institutional Gold and Silver Euros series is to highlight a strong numismatic symbol. For the next three years, we have chosen to honour three natural symbols whose engravings have shaped the French monetary landscape: the Oak, the Laurel and the Wheat.

    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.
