French Mint issue mini medal for Ukraine


07 March 2022
The Monnaie de Paris has issued a mini medal to show solidarity with the people of Ukraine, with €8 from each sale being donated to the Red Cross for the Ukrainian population.

Priced at €10 each, the mini-medal features the Eiffel Tower proudly displaying the two-coloured Ukrainian flag. The flag also features the French national motto "Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité", a motto that resonates beyond our own borders as a collective message of peace and humanism.

The mint also stated: "This mobilization is not limited to the borders of France. It is a collective and community momentum is symbolized by the stars of the European flag at the foot of the Eiffel Tower."
