Notre Dame de Paris – Coin Created After a Shocking Event to the Whole World – Notre-Dame Blaze!
This coin is created in honor of one of the most famous landmarks of France – Notre-Dame de Paris cathedral and the fire accident that ravaged it.
Notre Dame de Paris is the Roman-Catholic cathedral of Paris located in the center of the city. It is an 850-year-old Gothic building. Every year it has more than 13 million visitors and that is why it is considered to be one of the most popular tourist attractions and iconic landmarks of Paris until a devastating blaze ravaged it in the evening on 15 April 2019. A big question surrounding the fire at Notre-Dame is what exactly caused it – and whether it was an accident or arson. For putting the fire out, it took nine hours and more than 400 firefighters. Fortunately, there were no reported deaths.
A big part of the cathedral during this fire was destroyed, namely, most of the roof and the spire of the cathedral, with about one-third of the roof remaining, including the two bell towers, has been saved. President of France Emmanuel Macron called it a "terrible tragedy".
On the coin, the most significant architectural elements that decorate the cathedral are depicted in high detail. Thanks to digital printing, the overall look of the coin is beautifully done. The mintage is limited up to only 500 pieces worldwide. This coin is full of commemorative meaning and is an awesome gift for those who are fond of collecting coins.
