Wonderful World Award (WWA) – The Le Grand Mint Courage-Award 2020
Dear Friends, Colleagues, and Press Representatives,
Courage deserves respect. Especially in the year 2020. Human rights activists, democracy supporters and humanists worldwide are caught in the crossfire of capitalist excesses and totalitarian regimes. In Belarus, courage is bludgeoned down by an autocrat, in Germany right-wing populists mock the civil courage of climate activists, and in Lebanon corruption greedily eats away at civil society. But people are resisting, and they use powerful statements. This requires courage.
And courage deserves a prize - the human rights prize Wonderful World Award - offered by the internationally active Dortmund numismatics company Le Grand Mint, goes to Charbel Antonius Khoury in 2020.
The video journalist gives the liberal civil society in Lebanon a voice. Khoury comments on current events in economically and politically hard hit Lebanon in an ironic, yet courageously and bold way The free thinker will not let himself be silenced. Since 2020, this courageous contemporary witness has been presenting his own highly professional satire format on YouTube in cooperation with Daraij Media, which has always been critical of the government. As varied as the commitment of this year's WWA winner is, as great is the courage behind it.
The Le Grand Mint team offers its congratulations, we pay our respects and wish our WWA winner Charbel Antonius Khoury continued success and strength. The Wonderful World Award will be presented at ????????? at the Beirut Money Fair in Lebanon.

Doctors Without Borders
“There is almost no free medical aid in Lebanon because the health care system is highly privatized and fragmented. In 2019, we therefore focused our work on providing high-quality general and specialist medical help. This was all the more important since the large demonstrations against government policy led to economic instability. As a result, living conditions deteriorated, access to electricity and clean drinking water was restricted, and health care became more expensive. ” https://www.aerzte-ohne-grenzen.de/spende
Technical aid organization
"If the THW needs something, then we will not say no," said the Director General of the South Lebanese Water Authority (SLWE), Ahmad Nizam, on June 29 on the occasion of the handover of five water towers in the city of Barich, southeast of Beirut. In the previous three months, a two-person THW project team had commissioned humanitarian aid from the European Commission (ECHO) to build a high water tank in the region around Tire, to repair three badly damaged tanks and to build a floor tank. The project had a financial volume of EUR 500,000." https://www.beta.bund.de/DE/Leistung/99137002174000/Finanzierung_des_THW.html
Lebanese Red Cross
“The ongoing crisis in neighboring Syria continues to result in a large number of refugees in Lebanon. This places a great strain on the country's social infrastructure. The Lebanese Red Cross (LRC) emergency services are particularly affected. That is why the DRC continues to support the LRC emergency services with funding from the European Union to meet the continuing high demand in the country for medical care." https://www.drk.de/hilfe-weltweit/wo-wir-helfen/nahost/foerderung-des-gesundheitswesens-im-libanon/

YEAR OF THE MOUSE 2020
The Chinese horoscope is a science in itself, but reason enough to celebrate the mouse. After all, the Chinese are celebrating the Year of the Mouse in China's New Year 2020. Depending on the region also called the year of the rat. Nothing against the intelligent rat as such, but we've long since fallen in love with two small but very fine mice: made of pure gold and fine silver. Our gold piece of a mouse comes from Mongolia (order online), the pretty mouse in silver from distant Australia (buy here). Both are a great, very personal birth gift for those born in the zodiac of the mouse. Because coins made of precious metal are just perfect for the lucky ones who were born with the clever mouse. According to the Chinese horoscope, these birthday children are intelligent, curious and above all they are always happy about every profitable opportunity. Both mice in the Le Gand Mint range are just that: a clever way of investing farsightedly in the year of the Mouse 2020. Look forward to a mailing soon with a mouse motif. To the mouse and the New Year 2020.
The 12-year Chinese lunar cycle ended in 2019 with the Year of the Pig. The Coin invest Trust (CIT) celebrated the event with a superlative Chinese horoscope coin, which was minted with an innovative smartminting technology in the three-dimensional shape of a pig.
The creative team from CIT has managed to breathe new life into the oversaturated market with astrological coin motifs that flood the numismatic market every year. And the success of the "Jolly Silver Pig" paved the way for his successor. The Year of the Mouse shines with a gold coin from Mongolia. The Witty Silver Mouse published there was struck again three-dimensionally in order to produce a free-standing, delightful mouse, whose aesthetics are not only appreciated and admired by numismatists. The funny gold mouse is usually accompanied by a silver banknote and a small gold coin.
The third Chinese horoscope series (Lunar) series of the Perth Mint starts with the motif of the mouse, thus opening the 2020 edition. The back of the coin is adorned by two mice that climb around on the cob of corn in search of food. In addition to the inscription "Mouse 2020", the Chinese character for mouse and a "P", the mintmark of the Perth Mint, can be found on the back. The front shows the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II in the execution of Jody Clark, the weight, delicacy and the face value.
In addition to the classic investment variant in the usual denominations, the Perth Mint is launching the proof version of the Lunar III mouse in silver in the denominations 1 oz and ½ oz as well as a set of 3 (2 oz, 1 oz and ½ oz).
