This comic was created on October 29, 1959 by writer René Goscinny and cartoonist Albert Uderzo. After 36 world-famous adventures, the main hero, the favorite French Gaul, is already celebrating his 60th birthday!
The obverse represents Asterix in profile wearing his famous winged helmet. He is surrounded by laurels and Roman inscriptions referring to his 60 years. The 2019 yeardate and the RF (standing for République Française) mention are also on the obverse.
The reverse is the same than all the common 2€ coins, similar to all the countries of the euro zone.
The « 2 euro » face value appears in front of the european map.
