To celebrate the 75th anniversary of the fastest trigger in the West, the Monnaie de Paris launches in 2021 a collection of colourful mini-medals to the characters figures from Morris' comic strip. The mini-medals will be distributed in three waves. Each mini-medal is packaged in a card with the main elements of the Lucky Luke universe.
Rantanplan appears in 1960 in the pages of "On the Dalton trail". Its name was first spelled "Ran-Tan-Plan", in reference to Rin-Tin-Tin, the canine star of the small and big screens born in the United States in 1954, but with a very different concept: showing a dog as stupid in the comic strip as Rin-Tin-Tin could be brilliant on the small screen!
