    Description

    The Monnaie de Paris pays tribute in 2021 to Peyo's work and to the hundred or so smurfs he could imagine, all of them with a different character.

    This beautiful silvered bronze medal is the perfect gift to celebrate a birth. On the face, we find the baby Smurf playing with his cubes. The drawing is coloured with resin.

    On the reverse side is an allegory of the birth with a stork carrying the baby Smurf with its beak. The medal can be engraved on the reverse with a name and date of birth.

    The Collection

    Our collection of Smurfs gold and silver coins comes with a collection of coloured medals and mini medals. Produced at only 20,000 copies, the Smurf's mini medals are truly rare and desired collector's items.

    Translating comic book characters is an interesting but perilous mission. The transition from comic strip to volume must faithfully transcribe the clear line of Peyo's work. These coins and medals are the faithful representation of a graphic line proper to the Franco-Belgian artist, it is a tribute in three dimensions paid by the craftsmen of Monnaie de Paris to the universe of the Smurfs.

    • THE MEDAL MINTER

      The medal minter transforms a blank into a medal, alternating between striking to bring out the relief and annealing to return the metal to a more malleable state. The blank is struck as many times as necessary, depending on the diameter, depth and detail of the engraving. Finally, surface treatments are applied to enhance the finished piece

    • 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.
