    Description

    • A full series for the Asterix fans
    • Celebration of the Gallic the most courageous' 60th anniversary 

    The first Asterix comic was created on October 29, 1959 by writer René Goscinny and cartoonist Albert Uderzo. Over the albums, the series presents the adventures of the inhabitants of the famous little village of Armorique made up of irreducible Gauls. After 36 world-famous adventures, the main hero, the favorite French Gaul, is already celebrating his 60th birthday!

    Each coin of this series highlights one of the most famous characters of Asterix : Asterix himself, Obelix or Idefix. The 100€ ½ oz gold coin shows Asterix. The obverse represents the character from the creation of the comic to nowadays. The background of the coin is full of bubbles, which refers to the comic universe. 

    The reverse is the same for the collection. It shows Asterix getting out because of an explosion taken from a comic. The famous character seems have taken magic potion and looks like determined, ready to fight against Romans. 

    The Collection

    After the launch of the first collection celebrating the release of the new album Asterix and the Griffin in 2021, the Monnaie de Paris continues to honour one of the emblematic figures of the French comic strip at the heart of this new innovative monetary collection.

    Translating comic book characters is an interesting but perilous exercise. The transition from comic strip to volume must faithfully transcribe the clear line of Uderzo’s and Conrad‘s work. These medals are the faithful representation of a graphic line proper to the french artist, it is a tribute in three dimensions paid by the craftsmen of Monnaie de Paris to the universe of Asterix.
