One year after the passing of Uderzo, the Monnaie de Paris wanted to pay tribute to the creator and illustrator of the most famous Gaulish character: Asterix.
The year 2021 also marks the release of the new album of the saga: "Asterix and the Griffin". In this new adventure, the two Gauls and their druid Getafix are about to embark on a long and mysterious journey.
This very limited blister pack celebrates the launch of the 39th album of the winged Gaul: Asterix and the Griffin. On the front of the blister, we find Uderzo's characters, illustrated in this new opus of Asterix's adventures.
On the obverse of the mini-medal, we find the Gallic with the winged helmet facing a strange and worrying figure, with impressive fangs and a beak of a bird of prey. But what is this strange creature ? The reverse of the blister is numbered and includes a short introduction to the album.
