Post by: Prosit on August 22, 2011, 01:01:23 AM
Some of these are familiar to me and some marginally so and some not at all.
I will post the images...anyone care to comment please do.

Dagobert Duck

It is both a DuckTaler and a 10pfennig.  I find the dual denomination interesting.

Three scenes from the surprisingly well-researched Astérix series with the best known running jokes.

- Obélix loves the taste of the druid's magic potion, but he doesn't need it. He fell into a pot when he was small. When the Romans march against the village, everyone gets the magic potion. Obélix will always try to get some in the hurry and he is always spotted.
- When the terrified Romans show themselves, Obélix mood improves markedly and he invariably says "Chique! Des Romains!" Fortified by the magic potion, the village attacks. Somewhere along the line, the chief will fall from his shield...
- At the end of the story, all problems are forgotten and the village feasts on large heaps of food. The bard is not allowed to start new acrimony with his horrible songs. He and is harp are strung up in a tree.

Gugelhupf. :) See http://www.worldofcoins.eu/forum/index.php/topic,9836.0.html ...

The Disney parks I do not really like, but I used to be a big Donald Duck fan in my, ahem, youth. While I am not a D.O.N.A.L.D. (Deutsche Organisation der nichtkommerziellen Anhänger des lauteren Donaldismus (http://www.donald.org/)) member, the Duckomenta (http://www.duckomenta.de/), an exhibition about ducks in art (click on "Raum 1", "Raum 2" etc.), is quite interesting. 8)

Two cartoon character coins from Belgium. In 2004 a €10 coin reminded of the 75th anniversary of Tintin/Kuifje; in 2007 a €20 piece honored his "creator", Hergé. (He was born 100 years before; France also issued some coins on this occasion.)

And in 2008 a Belgian €5 coin commemorated 50 years of "Les Schtroumpfs" or "De Smurfen". Two versions were issued, a "plain" silver piece (see attached image) and a partly colored one.

So Martin Luther or Georg F. Händel were communists too? ;D  By the way, the designers of the Grimm Brothers coin from the GDR, Heinz Hoyer and Sneschana Russewa-Hoyer, also design many coins from this country. It's all an evil communist plot ...

Here is another one (image from catawiki.nl), the world famous Dog of Flanders. ;)

'Desperate Dan' from the Dandy comics. Desperate Dan is a wild west character in the British comic The Dandy. He made his appearance in the first issue which was dated 4 December 1937. He is apparently the world's strongest man, able to lift a cow with one hand. The pillow of his (reinforced) bed is filled with building rubble and his beard is so tough he shaves with a blowtorch.
Desperate Dan's favourite food is cow pie – a type of enormous meat pie with the horns sticking out.

(https://sites.google.com/site/malstrades/_/rsrc/1335322546430/home/Epa1410%20FE.jpg?height=143&width=320)

These were in denominations 5, 10 and 25 cents and issued by the British NAAFI for use in Iraq and Afghanistan, still legal tender in the canteens although now superseded by newer issues.

The strip was drawn by Dudley D. Watkins until his death in 1969. see picture.

In Switzerland they have a popular cartoon character named "Globi". It was originally created as an advertising figure for a department store chain, 80 years ago, but later got a life of its own so to say. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Globi This month the Swiss mint issued a 20 fr collector coin that features Globi ... and a birthday cake. :)

The Smurfs
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Smurfs (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Smurfs)

The 50th anniversary of the Smurfs and the 80th anniversary of the birth of its creator Peyo, were celebrated by issuing a high-value collectors' coin: the Belgian 5 euro 50th anniversary of The Smurfs commemorative coin, minted in 2008.

Those look like tokens. Pretty Neat...I wonder how many there are...

The Belgian coin is here (http://www.worldofcoins.eu/forum/index.php?topic=11190.msg75553#msg75553) by the way. Yes, looks like a token, but I don't know how many there are. Maybe it's the local currency of Júzcar (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Júzcar) ... ;D

Last year the Monnaie de Paris issued a series of collector coins that honor Walt Disney who had died 50 years ago. The theme of all pieces is Mickey Mouse, in various phases and positions. You can see the whole series here (https://www.monnaiedeparis.fr/en/shop/mickey-through-the-ages). This is the €10 silver piece:
