An exceptional issue on the occasion of the 90th birthday of Tintin (and Bobbie)
The comic book heroes are honored with a 5 euro relief and a 5 euro with colour in coincard.
In 2019, Tintin and his inseparable Bobbie blow out 90 candles. To give colour to this festive birthday, the original black and white edition of Tintin in Congo was remastered into a beautiful digital album in colour. The design of the new 5 euro piece is based on this digital album and there are two qualities available: in relief and in colour.
The image side shows the silhouettes of Tintin and Bobbie who have gathered around a campfire in the African savannah. In the colour version, the flame was coloured orange-yellow, which gives the coin a very realistic effect. Below the coin border is Tintin's first publication date (1929) as well as the copyright notice.
