    Description

    For the release of its new album in 2020, Monnaie de Paris is honouring the world of Morris through a complete collection of coins and medals. This series features illustrations by Achdé, drawer of the new albums of the saga.

     

    This coin set celebrates Lucky Luke's new adventure in the heart of Louisiana. The cowboy is Here accompanied by his trusty Jolly jumper, both crossing a cotton field. This drawing directly echoes the album "A Cowboy in High Cotton".  The logo of Monnaie de Paris and the comic strip logo are also visible on the obverse of the miniset, as well as the 8 coins arranged in a circle. 

    The Collection

    Monnaie de Paris unveils a collection dedicated to the universe of Lucky Luke, celebrating in 2021 the 75th anniversary of the lone cowboy, a few months after the release of the new album of the series, A Cowboy in high cotton.

    Translating comic book characters is an interesting but perilous exercise. The transition from comic strip to volume must faithfully transcribe the clear line of Morris and Achdé'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 Lucky Luke.

    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.
