    Description

    In 2022, Monnaie de Paris pays tribute to the characters of the most emblematic figures of the French comic strip, Asterix. This new collection of € Gold and Silver coins is struck in precious metals and a part is colored.

    This pack has been developed to store the entire Asterix € Gold and Silver collection. Its shape is inspired by the Gaulish village.

    It is sold with the entire 10€ silver coins of the Asterix € Gold and Silver collection. 

    The Collection

    Monnaie de Paris continues to honour the irreducible Gauls with a collection of gold and silver coins bearing the most emblematic elements of the comic strip.

    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 coins 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

    Our craftman

    • THE ENGRAVER

      Trained at the best schools, they have the years of experience behind them necessary to master all aspects of the craft. Using industrial oil-based modelling clay and working from a design executed freehand or with CAD software, they skilfully fashion a low relief model in order to enhance the engraving and the way it catches the light. They work alternately with concave and convex plaster moulds until satisfied they have achieved the best 3D rendering of the design.

    • THE MINTER

      The first minters began to ply their trade in France when striking with a hammer appeared in the 4th century BC. Nowdays, minsters use press instead of a hammer. Their knowledge of dies, engraving and metals, and their expertise - passed seamlessly down from one generation to the next for centuries - guarantees the excellence of their work.
