Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Tweety, Sylvester, Wile E. Coyote, Tazmanian Devil, Marvin the Martian; For many Canadians & others around the world, the mere mention of these names evoke fond childhood memories of spending Saturday mornings in front of a television, transfixed and spellbound as these characters, and many more, outsmarted each other in situations that could only exist in our imaginations.
The reverse image, provided by Warner Bros., brings together some of the principal Looney Tunes characters framed in concentric circles, much like the end credits after each cartoon that were accompanied by the line “That’s all Folks!”. Beautifully detailed engraving and spectacular colour bring this design to life, with dynamic movement created by the characters as they appear to be emerging from the centre opening. As the star of the 'show', Bugs Bunny is the centre focus; with one hand leaning on the circle, he confidently smiles his wide, buck-toothed grin as his other gloved hand reaches out toward the viewer. The other characters are sometimes portrayed as antagonists: there’s Wile E. Coyote just over Bugs’ right shoulder, as he looks off to the side and waves a closed fist in the air; above him stands the Tasmanian Devil with his arms raised and mouth open; next to him is Daffy, who bears an expression of defiant outrage as he also stands with fists clenched; finally, there’s the calmly villainous space character known as Marvin the Martian, who lifts his thumb up as he scrutinizes something in the distance.
In keeping with the playful nature of Looney Tunes, look closely at the coin to find a hidden surprise design element! As part of this special issue, the coin includes an exclusive Looney Tunes pocket watch that was not available anywhere else!
