D-day is celebrated with Fairmined coins by Monnaie de Paris

75TH ANNIVERSARY OF D-DAY IS CELEBRATED WITH FAIRMINED COINS BY MONNAIE DE PARIS

Responsible and Fairmined Gold is part of the coins collection launched by La Monnaie de Paris (Mint of Paris) on June 6th, 2019, aimed at celebrating D-Day, which commemorates the arrival of the Allies to Normandy during the Second World War.

The collection includes two coins of 7 and 28 grams, made with gold provided by mining organizations certified with the Fairmined Standard. Their price is 750 and 3.000 euros respectively.

La Monnaie de Paris is one of the many organizations committed to selling ethical and responsible gold extracted by artisanal and small-scale miners worldwide. Fairmined coin collections show the value the industry gives to Fairmined gold, which is mined by mining organizations that apply good practices.

Buying the collection means people are contributing to the development and improvement of life quality of the mining communities in Latin America and Africa.

In 2018, Paris Mint launched the fist Fairmined coin to commemorate the century of the First World War.

We invite you to find out more about the certified mining organizations, where the responsible gold from these coins comes from, and their life-changing stories.
