    • A series that celebrates the Ducktales characters
    • Commemorating the 30 years of the first broadcast in the US


    In 2016, Monnaie de Paris honoured the character Mickey and his evolution through ages. The year 2017 marks the anniversary of the animated television series DuckTales, broadcasted for the first time in September 1987. It is also Scrooge McDuck’s 70th birthday, one of Disney’s emblematic character. 

    On the obverse of this 50€ Silver coin, Scrooge McDuck is highlighted, surrounded by Donald Duck, his grandnephews Huey Duck, Dewey Duck, and Louie Duck and Daisy Duck. They are enhanced by a subtle colorisation that reveals the metal. 

    The reverse of this coin presents the perfect symmetry of the outline of Scrooge McDuck’s head that is presented on the obverse. 

    It is drawn on the same background as the one present on the obverse and inspired from Disney’s universe, composed of bubbles of comics, stars or again Donald’s beret.

    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.
