An Incredibly Creative Coin

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.
