La qualité "Belle Épreuve" est la plus haute qualité numismatique devant les qualités "Brillant Universel" (BU) et "courante". Une pièce belle épreuve est une pièce obtenue au moyen de coins et de flans spécialement préparés et de conditions de frappe particulières, de sorte que les motifs de gravure ressortent avec une grande netteté et que la surface est sans défaut. Les fonds de la gravure sont extrêmement brillants, les reliefs sont matés.

    Description

    In 2022, Monnaie de Paris reveals the second part of its hommage to the 20th anniversary of euro, by celebrating the 20th anniversary of the introduction of the euro currency.


    Like a chronological frieze, on the right-hand side of the obverse is the French franc symbol accompanied by an olive branch. This natural and numismatic symbol has appeared on the 1 franc coins since the monetary reform of the Fifth Republic. On the right-hand side, the Euro symbol encircles Joaquin Jiménez's "Tree of Life“, designed in 1997.


    The reverse is identical to the 2021 Sower collection, paying a first tribute to the European currecy. On the left is the original sower design by the engraver Oscar Roty, sowing 20 stars in the furrows of the French flag. The face in the foreground is a representation of the original face of the woman who inspired the engraver in 1896, Rosalinda Pesce.
