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 the Road Runner looking down at an outline of Wile E. Coyote in the ground, no doubt after yet another failed attempt to capture the Road Runner. Road Runner's mouth is open while delivering it's trademarked Beep! Beep! to the fallen Coyote. The two enjoyed their first battle in 1949, and have been featured together in 48 cartoons to date. When viewed closely the coin reveals an "Easter egg" of Road Runner's tail outline laser engraved in the background.
With a limited mintage of only 30000, these will sell quickly.
This coin is encased in a full colour graphic presentation box.
