In 2017, Monnaie de Paris celebrates Michelin starred Chef Guy Savoy whose restaurant was appointed Best Restaurant in the world. The series makes references to the gastronomic register of the starred Chef: the egg, the truffle, the asparagus…
Furthermore this 200€ Gold coin has an unique egg shape, reference to this ingredient that is used in so many culinary creations. As on the obverse, we can see a hen that is composed of elements from Guy Savoy’s culinary universe. The neck takes the shape of a skate wing, the body is drawn with artichoke leaves, with the texture of a truffle and with the scales of a fish. The tail is made in comparison of a cabbage leaf. The reverse presents the four elements used when cooking, and in its centre the egg yolk.
