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

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 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 ... ;D
