French politician and banker, appointed Governor of the Banque de France during the liberation of France at the end of World War II.

As the Secretary General of Finance in the Provisional Government of the French Republic from August 29 to 4 September 1944, he had to decide what to do about the gold that the Nazi Party requisitioned from the National Bank of Belgium following the Second Armistice at Compiègne in 1940, which they later sold to the Swiss National Bank.

The 220 tons of gold were repaid to the National Bank of Belgium at the end of 1944 from the Banque de France’s own reserves. Monick negotiated recovery for the Banque de France of 90 tons of gold and 250 million Swiss francs.

He died on 23 December 1983.
