    Description

    In 2016, Monnaie de Paris launched a new series that paid tribute to the History of France through famous women who had an influence in several fields, such as politics, Art or Science...

    In 2022, this series widens internationally and highlights women of the world. This series uses the principle of free striking which gives an antique look to the coins and makes each coin perfectly imperfect and therefore unique. After Sister Emmanuel in 2020 and Simone Veil in 2021, we pay tribute to Grace Kelly on the 40th anniversary of her death.

    The Collection

    This series, lauched in 2016, honour each year one or more women who have had an influence on various areas in French history. These coins feature a free striking that highlights motifs inspired by rich textile motif of that time.
    Simone Veil
    Sœur Emmanuelle
    Marie Curie

    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.
