Description

On the occasion of the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games, Monnaie de Paris (The French Mint) pays homage to this renowned international competition and honors the Olympic Torch.

On the obverse of the coin, Marianne, symbol of the French Republic, is depicted in motion while holding the Olympic torch of the Paris 2024 Olympic Games. The dancing flame atop the torch symbolizes the passionate spirit and determination of the athletes.

The Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games Torch is much more than a simple object. A strong symbol that embodies the spirit of the Games, spreading a message of peace and unity.

The Torch, lit according to tradition in Olympia, will cross the Mediterranean Sea to arrive in Marseille, France on 8 May 2024, marking the start of four months of celebrations.

The Torch's design reflects the values ​​of Paris 2024, with a unique color inspired by equality, water and peace. It thus becomes the central element of the celebrations, from the start of its journey in France on 8 May 2024 to the closing of the Paralympic Games on 8 September 2024. Created as an art object, the Torch represents the unique identity of Paris 2024 , combining tradition and modernity, carrying forward the Olympic legacy while celebrating contemporary values.

The torch is a strong symbol of the Olympic Games. It marks the opening of the Olympic and Paralympic Games. To pay homage to him, Monnaie de Paris wanted to take up the challenge of technical innovation for this collection. He thus developed his first coin with an iridescent effect.

The iridescent effect is a technical innovation made up of a multitude of facets engraved during processing which will then be transferred to the coin during minting, creating a unique visual effect. When the piece is tilted, natural light is refracted through tiny incisions, producing an iridescent rainbow that accentuates the details of the design and adds a dramatic dimension of color to the piece.

The reverse of the coin depicts a view of Paris where the Seine takes on the appearance of an athletics track. The Eiffel Tower dominates the city and lights up the competition.
