Francq - Mint - 1 Statue(s)

Diameter 15 cm - Mint condition - Edition of 1 copy - Royal Mint of Belgium / Monnaie Royale de Belgique

This item originates from the archives of the Royal Mint of Belgium. The lot is in mint condition. This lot concerns the model of the obverse of the coin and the released coin.

Until recently, all coins were only designed and engraved by hand. First the design was made and then hand-engraved on a plaster model or in plastics. Precise work down to the last millimetre. That plaster tablet then went into something which you would now call a copier, a device from early last century which still works. The plaster tablet is tracked with compasses and every notch is transferred in smaller size to the target. The target then makes the imprint in the coin stamp. The coin stamp was then taken to the mint, where it was used to mint coins. Nowadays, this is all done digitally.
