1/4€ FRANCE 2023 - "Break dance" Paris Olympic Games

On the occasion of the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games, Monnaie de Paris pays tribute to these renowned international competitions through a collection that highlights sport, its values, the athletes but also the heritage of the host country. Olympism and Paralympism are celebrated.

In 2023, the Breakup is represented on the Coins. It is a dance style that developed in the United States during the 1970s. Born in the effervescence of neighborhood parties in the Bronx, derived from hip hop culture, it stands out for its acrobatic dimension, its figures on the ground as well as its the key role played by both the DJ (disc jockey) and MC (master of ceremonies) during the "battles". Starting in the 1990s, international battles were organized around the world and helped popularize the discipline, both within the hip hop communities of each country and among the general public. The first appearance of breakdancing in the Olympic Games will be in 2024 at the Paris 2024 Games

The reverse common to the series presents a view of Paris where the Seine takes on the appearance of an athletics track. The Eiffel Tower dominates the city and illuminates the competition.
