50 euro - Lucky Luke – A cowboy in high cotton
For the release of its new albumin 2020, Monnaie de Paris is honouring the world of Morris through a complete collection of coins and medals. This series features illustrations by Achdé, drawer of the new albums of the saga. The obverse of this coin features the cover of Lucky Luke's new album, "A Cowboy in High Cotton”. We find here the character of Morris and Bass Reeves, the second hero of this opus, in the middle of a cotton field. The reverse of the coin represents one of the most emblematic cartoon boards of the Franco-Belgian comic strip. Here, Lucky-Luke fights a duel against his own shadow and proves once again that he is indeed the fastest shooter in the west. The "75 ans" mention under the character's name celebrates the birthday of the famous cowboy.
