Over the course of the next three years, the emblematic Sower series will honor the myths and legends that have shaped the history of Gold.

This first issue focuses on Midas, king of Phrygia, who was bestowed with the gift of turning everything he touched into pure gold by the god Dionysus. Midas quickly started to suffer from this gift that could make him infinitely rich. Unable to eat or quench his thirst, he sought comfort in the arms of his daughter, who instantly turned into a golden statue. He then implored Dionysus to take away this gift, and according to legend had to wash himself in the river Pactolus to be able to free himself from this curse.

On the reverse, we find a modernized adaptation of the Sower of the engraver Louis-Oscar Roty, letting appear on the drape of its dress a heraldic version of the French flag. The word "RF" is also encircled by an interlacing of hexagons reminiscent of France.
