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 miniset celebrates the launch of the 39th album of the Asterix adventures: Asterix and the Griffin. It contains the 8 French circulating coins dated 2021, and minted in Universal Brilliant quality.
On the front, Obelix is climbing a tree trunk to try to recover Dogmatix, perched on the head of the griffin.
On the reverse, it is Asterix who is trying to get his way. Is the little Gaulish dog trying to break free? The reverse of the 8 coins can also be seen on the reverse of this miniset.
