    Description

    In 2022, Smiley celebrates its fifth decade of smiles and optimism.  

    The emblematic yellow, round face of the brand was born on 1st, January 1972 in France, when journalist Franklin Loufrani used this infectious smile in the newspaper France-soir in order to highlight stories which brought positive news and cheered up French people’s spirit. This  operation, called « Take the time to smile » was an immediate success.

    In 1996, the logo is relaunched and developped in other forms : a new 3D version is created and new expressions are added in. Nowadays, from the smiley to the emoticon, smiling takes multiple forms, becoming a representative of cheerfulness ! 

    Since the creation of the yellow smile in 1972, Smiley diversified the range of its expressions, conveying over a hundred émotions. From the smiley to the emoticon, smiling takes multiple forms.

    Each mini-medal highlights a particular emotion : love, gratitude, gluttony, joy and laughing. 

    The  medals are packaged in a coloured packaging, to treat to someone or to yourself. 

    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.
