Hello Kitty

Born in 1974, Hello Kitty has become a pop icon symbolisingJapanese culture. Monnaiede Paris has decided to celebrate this icon and her world with its new collection. Don't miss this exceptional opportunity to celebrate 50 years of Hello Kitty in style and elegance!

In this collection, it's not just the General Engraver who expresses himself, but also the grandfather that I am! We had a lot of fun representing this endearing character that my granddaughters adore. Beyond this personal aspect, the graphic interest of this collection was to see Hello Kitty move from one cut to another according to the coins; she is sometimes Japanese in traditional dress and then becomes a perfect Parisian, showing the range of different outfits she has worn over the last 50 years.

Emblematic coins

This collection symboliseskawaii, a Japanese adjective that evokes cuteness and the world of childhood. There are two Hello Kitty coins and two colouredcoins. On the first colouredcoin, Hello Kitty slips into the shoes of a Parisian woman wearing a bow in the coloursof France, a beret and carrying a baguette as she strides along the Parisian pavement, posing in front of Notre Dame and the Eiffel Tower. On the second coin Hello Kitty is wearing a traditional Japanese kimono and sheltering under an umbrella. In the background, fans, lanterns and cherry blossoms evoke Japanese culture in a gentle and poetic way. On the reverse, bows, the unmistakable signature that she always wears on her left ear. The words "50th Anniversary" are also present as a reminder of her birthday.Translatedwith DeepL.com (free version)
