Struck by the French National mint, Monnaie de Paris (MdP), to thank the important frontline workers in the fight against COVID-19, this collector medal demonstrates the French admiration for the courage and commitment of thee individuals.
Available at an RRP of 8€ (about A$12-$13) direct from the mint, 75% of that price will be donated to Fondation de France, a French charitable organisation. With that in mind, the price for this medal here might seem excessive at A$25 apiece. HOWEVER, for every medal sold, Melbourne Coin Company will donate 100% of the takings to The Smith Family charity, here in Australia.
There was10 medals in stock, so with your help, $250 has been donated (CLICK HERE to see details). A small amount, maybe, but for all who have been affected in some way by COVID-19, any help we can give is important.
