The Looney Tunes™ characters are some of the craziest and best-loved animated characters of all time. The first Looney Tunes™ short dates to 1929, although the first appearance of a major character recognizable today was by Porky Pig in 1935. Merrie Melodies were animated in full colour starting in 1934, a full nine years before Looney Tunes™.
The reverse of this coin features a rendering of Tweety Bird on a swing, looking directly at us and smiling. Tweety first appeared in a short in 1942, although it wasn't until 1945 that Tweety took on the appearance that we are familiar with today. Tweety and Sylvester are one of the most popular pairings in animation, and the foundation of the famous line: "I tawt I taw a putty tat!". When viewed closely the coin reveals an "Easter egg" of Tweety's outline laser engraved in the background.
With a limited mintage of only 30000, these will sell quickly.
This coin ships in a full colour graphic display box.
