Why purchase this 2019 France Notre Dame Cathedral Reconstruction Cupronickel Medal?
On April 15, 2019, one of the world's most iconic masterpieces of Gothic style architecture, the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, was badly damaged by a fiery blaze. The Cathedral has stood proudly as a landmark of Paris since 1345, and was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1991. The Monnaie de Paris (Paris Mint) has memorialized the Cathedral on a 34 mm Cupronickel Medallion, simultaneously providing a means to raise funds to help with the massive effort to restore the remaining structure of the building and rebuild areas completely destroyed by the fire.
Breathtaking Commemorative Designs
A magnificent replica of the Cathedral's iconic northern "rose" stained-glass window is illustrated on the reverse. The image is encircled by a border containing the inscriptions "RECONSTRUCTION DE NOTRE-DAME DE PARIS," "15 AVRIL 2019" and "MONNAIE DE PARIS."
The Cathedral's south facade is depicted on the obverse, surrounded by a collage featuring examples of the building's Gothic elements: a gargoyle, the arch of the main entry and tympanum.
