This series, which was launched last year, continues its tribute to the characters of French literature. After the tragic destinies featured in 2011, it's the adventurers' turn in the spotlight: Cyrano, D’Artagnan and Puss in Boots.

D’Artagnan was one of the emblematic musketeers under the reign of King Louis XIII. On the obverse, d'Artagnan is presented in all the splendour of his period costume. In the background, the three musketeers declare their famous motto "Un pour tous, tous pour un" which appears alongside a fleur de lys cross. On the reverse, a portrait of Alexandre Dumas is accompanied by a quotation from the novel: "Le jeune Mousquetaire était en excellente disposition pour trépasser héroïquement".
