Lady Marianne has been the personification of the Republic of France since the French Revolution. She represents liberty, equality, fraternity and reason.
An undeniable symbol of one’s own worth. One of the most valued tangible (nowadays more or less conceptual) items amongst mankind, is money. And why it is so valuable is not because of the item or numerical digit inside our bank account itself- but the countless possibilities it can represent for one’s life. When we relate to the positive energies of the coin, we remember that we hold the necessary tools inside ourselves to build a life of our dreams, to sustain our own lives and those we look after, to treat ourselves kindly and to even uplift the sense of worth in others with the unspoken words “you deserve this” as we pass these tools along to one another.
Since the very beginning of coins’ existence, they have also served as an amazing visual display of a territory’s history, accomplishments and culture, making them a potent symbol of pride and remembrance of where we came from and what makes us, us.
