Own Monnaie de Paris' egg-cellent silver Proof tribute to the famous chef Guy Savoy.
What a unique coin to add to your collection! This silver egg-shaped 10 Euro coin is inspired by the tradition of French high gastronomy.
A quote by Savoy was the inspiration behind the deisgn: the egg is "the second salt of the earth" and an ingredient essential to many of his dishes.
The obverse design also features the essential elements of a chef's work, fire, earth, water and air, which are all required in some way to produce delicious food. Finally, a passionate quotation from Guy Savoy winds its way around the coin's edge: COOKING IS THE ART OF BEING ABLE TO INSTANTLY TRANSFORM INGREDIENTS LADEN WITH HISTORY INTO JOY.
The reverse features an intricate engraving of a chicken, cleverly composed of different cooking ingredients. The neck is a skate wing, the body is made from artichoke leaves, textured with truffles and fish scales. Finally, the tail is made from a cabbage leaf.
Guy Savoy is one of the world's most celebrated chefs. With countless awards including 3 Michelin stars, 5 Gault Millau toques, and 4 Bottin Gourmand stars, his restaurants in Paris and Las Vegas are always filled with happy customers.
In 2017, Savoy's Monnaie de Paris restaurant was named Best Restaurant in the World for the second year running.
With its unique shape and cultured subject matter, this coin is perfect for those who enjoy the finer things in life.
