Description

This $30 fine silver coin captures a memorable classic scene portrayed in the Looney Tunes™ cartoon series.  This large format Canadian $30 denomination is struck in just over two ounces of pure silver, and features fine engraving and vibrant selective colouring reminiscent of the colours the original cartoons. The packaging for this coin adds to the fun, with the box mimicking the ACME crates.  Mintage is limited to 5,000. HST/GST exempt.


The Design:

The original cartoon and coin design are a parody of Rossini’s most famous opera, The Barber of Seville. Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd are a dynamic duo who share a long history of antagonizing one another in great comedic fashion.  Seen in side-profile and in colour, Elmer Fudd is seated in a barber chair as he leans forward to peer into a mirror held up by a self-possessed Bugs Bunny; upon seeing his reflection, he is shocked to find Bugs’ barbershop antics have resulted in a flowery “mane” of bright red flowers on the top of his bald head. Enhanced by the use of multiple finishes, the engraved background offers a depiction of the stage setting, as seen in the 1950 animated short.
