Description

This 2015 large format Canadian $30 collector coin is both fun and a high quality collectible, capturing Tweety Bird and Sylvester in one of the most memorable classic scenes ever portrayed in the Looney Tunes™ cartoon series.  The coin is struck in just over two ounces of pure silver, and features fine engraving and vibrant selective colouring reminiscent of the colours of the original cartoons.  As a pure silver coin struck by the Royal Canadian Mint, this item is GST/HST exempt. 


The Design:

The coin depicts a scene from the Looney Tunes cartoon Birds Anonymous (1957).  Rendered in finely detailed engraving and selective colour, the scene is one that makes a playful use of shadows and light.  Peering out at the viewer as though they have caught him in the act, Sylvester stands frozen with eyes wide open, and one hand wrapped around Tweety.  Tweety is also facing the viewer, with an expression of shock on his face after being plucked from his cage by the hungry cat, and yet stunned by the interruption that may have just spared him his life.

Even the packaging for these coins adds to the fun, with the boxes mimicking ACME crates.
