The Monnaie de Paris pays tribute to a master piece of the Gothic art period, listed as UNESCO World Heritage, by minting gold and silver coins dedicated to ‘Notre-Dame de Paris’ Cathedral.

Monnaie de Paris(フランス造幣局)は、金貨と銀貨を鋳造して「パリのノートルダム」大聖堂に捧げユネスコ世界遺産に登録されているゴシック美術の傑作をたたえます。

A specific technology has been developed to create a special “stained glass” coin. The € 10 silver coin will be enhanced with cold, translucent enamel, reminiscent of the cathedral’s great rose window.
A one kilogram gold coin will further add to the prestige of this series.


The collection also exists in 4 gold bankbills (€5000, €200, €50, €5) and 2 silver bankbills (€50, €10).
