Comments

On September 3, 1973, the Pessac production site was inaugurated. Heir to the Le Corbusier style, the factory was designed by the Atelier Salier-Courtois-Lajus-Fouquet, and represents a remarkable architectural and industrial heritage. To mark the 50th anniversary of the factory's inauguration, Monnaie de Paris invites you to discover its hidden face...through a mini-medal packaged in a cardlet.
