    Description

    Iconic little blue pixies, The Smurfs made their first appearance in the Johan & Pirlouit album “The Smurfs and the Magic Flute”, created by Peyo in 1958.


    Since then, those blue characters, dressed with white pants and hats have been living many adventures in multiple albums.


    In 2020, Monnaie de Paris pays tribute to comics and to Peyo’s work but also to the hundred of iconic characters, all very much alike, but with such different nature.


    It depicts three Smurfs holding hands that symbolize the camaraderie, friendship, etc. that reigns in the village.


    The values of the French Republic: Liberty, Equality and Fraternity are inscribed on the coin, they echo the values of the little blue characters: honesty, frankness, friendship, mutual aid, solidarity, altruism and generosity.

    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.

    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.
