LIBERTY | 2021

Dear Sir or Madam, dear friends, partners and press representatives,

 

“Stay healthy” became a common phrase last year. Stay healthy. But many people have not been granted that in the past few months. The pandemic still holds the world under control. Freedom rights have been restricted to protect health, but life goes on and we have responsibility. Defying the crisis, Le Grand Mint advances with an opulent celebration of life, health and freedom.

Inspired by ancient Greek mythology, the Dortmund numismatics producer presents the exquisite gem "Liberty". On the naturalistically designed front, the beautiful Liberty confidently and purposefully guards our wonderful world. The earth is symbolized by the pomegranate. The sweet fruit with the bitter kernels has stood for life on planet earth for thousands of years, to which we all owe our lives.

 

The design idea was elegantly implemented by the Italian artist Loredana Pancotto from Rome. The designer has already designed award-winning collector coins for the Republic of San Marino and belongs to the grande dame of the Italian medal and numismatic design elite. 

 

The latest precious coinage from the in-house silver coin collection "The Wonderful World" will soon be produced in the usual high quality from 999.9 fine silver and published in a limited edition. “Per Aspera ad Astra”, this inscription surrounds the back of the elegant 25 livres / lira / pounds silver coin from Le Grand Mint: “Rough paths lead to the stars”, is the meaning of the phrase from antiquity. Dedicated to medicine, science and medicine, an Aesculapian snake winds its way up there. This finely crafted relief in fine silver is a noble homage to valuable health. Probably the most important good in our life in freedom. With the silver gem "Liberty", Le Gand Mint is setting new standards and a new milestone in the classic modern coin design. For the sake of noble, beautiful freedom.

MYTH | THE SEDUCTION OF EUROPE

Dear Sir or Madam, dear friends, partners and press representatives, the wonderful world of numismatics from Le Grand Mint presents the new silver coin series "Mythos".The first piece of jewelery made from the purest 999.9 fine silver finally lets the myth of the kidnapping of Europe shine in a modern and contemporary way.Thank you for your attention

 

Myth - The Seduction of Europe

 

With her head held high, a proud woman rides the vigorous bull under the starry sky towards a new future together in the manor house. This scene from Greek mythology is magnificently recorded on the first silver coinage of the new in-house Wonderful World collection "Mythos". No less a person than God the Father Zeus himself carries the Phoenician princess Europe away on his strong back in the fairytale-like setting. An epochal event.

 

To seduce the king's daughter from the Orient, Zeus once descended from the Greek Olympus, crossed the Mediterranean Sea to transform himself into a bull on the shores of today's Lebanon. Zeus tested the noble character of the young woman with a feint. Stuck seemingly helpless in a swamp, the princess saw the bull, promptly and fearlessly fed him flowers and helped the god in the form of a bull to freedom. The divine test was passed with flying colors. Zeus returned to Greece together with the Phoenician woman and fathered three siblings with the namesake of the continent of Europe, who was named the new Queen of Crete. With this, the lovers Zeus and Europe created a new lineage that strengthened the liaison between the Occident and the Orient over the centuries up to the Middle Ages of our time.

 

The wonderful story of the seduction of Europe from the world of Roman-Greek mythology is often portrayed as the cunning kidnapping of Europe from the Phoenician Empire. But rather Europe overcame "the horns of the bull with flowers"; means: With the power of nature and love. Europe stands for the feminine power of the moon, which with its compassionate gentleness bewitched the supernatural sun god Zeus. With their ride to the west, however, Europe not only gave the Europeans the name of their continent, but also the art of writing using the alphabet or the shipbuilding techniques of the seafaring Phoenicians. The real core of the myth of the seduction of Europe, however, is the blossoming of the Greco-Oriental culture after the dark centuries at the end of the Bronze Age. 

Deeply impressed by this huge legend of the founding of European civilization, which goes back to the introduction of agriculture in Europe, the Dortmund numismatics producer Le Grand Mint proudly presents the seduction of Europe as an opulent masterpiece of coin design.

 

Artistically implemented by Carmen Testa, “The Seduction of Europe” forms the glamorous start of the new “Mythos” Wonderful World Collection, which will be continued and which now invites you to collect. The virtuoso designer lives and works in Rome and is an expert in her field. The Italian artist designed a series of coins for the 2018 Winter Olympics and is an expert on Greek-Roman mythology.

 

The brand new noble medal designed by Carmen Testa features detailed representations of the symbols of Greek sagas, legends and myths. The protective, peaceful owl of Minerva stands out on the silver jewel just as finely worked out as Zeus, who appears defensive with his god lightning. On the reverse of the Le Grand Mint high relief coin, valued at a nominal value of 25 livre, also emblazoned the label of the Dortmund company, which was embossed using the Supreme Minting technology process. The front side not only charms with the dynamic main motif, but also shows the most important star formations of the ancient Greeks, which already showed the beautiful Phoenician Europe the way in the right direction. The portrait of Europe, clad in a billowing cape, is filigree in the 999.9 fine silver coinage. Just as fascinating when looking at the great work of art is the vivid plastic bull ridden by Europe at a gallop under the epochal starry sky. This coin seduces at first sight.

 

The latest precious coinage of the silver coin collection The Wonderful World will soon be published in the usual high quality in limited editions. The myth lives on.

THE CONTINENTS | EUROPE | MONT BLANC

Dear Sir or Madam, dear friends, partners and press representatives,

For tens of billions of years it has been seething inside our wonderful planet, until today only a few kilometers of tenants waft huge lava flows beneath the thin earth's crust. The earth we humans live on is constantly changing, from the primary continent Pangea 250 million years ago to Laurasia in the north and Gondwana in the south to our six continents in the here and now, it was a long way.

The continents protruding from the oceans shape the face of our wonderful world. We humans are the new ones on this planet earth. The time has finally come for us to dedicate a shining monument to the ancient continents that make human life possible in the first place. Wonderfully designed by a star designer and embossed in the finest silver in the world.

The Continents is the name of the latest silver coin series from Le Grand Mint's own Wonderful World Collection. Impressed and humbled towards the continents, the Dortmund numismatics producer is the first to present the Eurasian subcontinent Europe together with its highest elevation. As on all continents, plate tectonics has given rise to gigantic mountain massifs and volcanoes; they symbolize the primal forces of the continents, all of which are still in motion and change. 


 

The idea of ​​"The Continents" from Le Grand Mint is artistically implemented by the Slovak coin designer Miroslav Hric. The award-winning artist has already designed many popular collector's items, which are known far beyond the borders of small Slovakia throughout Europe and across all continents are highly sought after by numismatists and investors.

On the elegant front, designed in a clear, naturalistic Wonderful World design, the contour of the continent of Europe towers over the Mont Blanc, which towers 4808 meters high into the sky. Both core objects are lovingly worked out in the 999.9 fine silver embossing. The whole thing for the first time in an elaborate high-relief design in order to do justice to the epoch-making theme of "The Continents" with its highest mountains in all its opulence in terms of production technology.

The latest precious coinage of the silver coin collection The Wonderful World "will soon be produced in the usual high quality from 999.9 fine silver and published in a limited edition.
