A CAUSE

At the start of the 90s, breast cancer was a taboo. At that time, research had very little financing and mobilization was almost zero.

In October 1994, a sensitization campaign called “Breast Cancer, let’s talk about it !” is launched in France, gathering the Estee Lauder France Group and the Marie Claire Magazine.On the initiative of the same people, October became around the world the meeting point of a sensitization campaign. Stressing on the dialog on the significance of the early breast cancer detection as well as on the fight against breast cancer in general, called « Pink October »!

MONNAIE DE PARIS’ INVOLVMENT

Aware of this cause, Monnaie de Paris has decided to support it on two different levels. On  the communication level through the circulating €2 with its wide distribution across Europe; on, the financial level with a €2 payment to the association for each sale of a Proof or BU €2 coin.

 

 

THE PINK RIBBON

 

Created in 1992, the pink ribbon is the global symbol of the Fight against Breast Cancer. In 2017 the pink ribbon is celebrating its 25th anniversary. It was Evelyn H. Lauder, Vice President of Estée Lauder and Self Magazine who invented this symbol. Selected for its femininity, its joy and its sweetness, the color pink evokes «everything that cancer is not», offering  a vision of hope in the fight against the illness. In 20 years, over 100 million pink ribbons have been distributed around the world.
