About Looney Tunes Coin Collection

Here are some clips from their press release:

The Royal Canadian Mint, in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, is celebrating the kid in all of us by issuing gold and silver collector coins featuring the widely beloved Looney Tunes™ to celebrate the 75th anniversary of Bugs Bunny.

Several Looney Tunes™ collector coins, featuring a variety of technology, special offers and unique packaging, will be issued by the Royal Canadian Mint throughout 2015.  The following are available for purchase as of today:

  • A subscription set featuring all eight $10 silver coins that will be issued throughout 2015. The set’s unique presentation case also includes an opening to store the “20 for $20” silver coin. Each coin features a fun, hidden surprise design element.
  • A $20 “Merrie Melodies” silver coin featuring Bugs Bunny and the gang in a design that is reminiscent of the Looney Tunes’ end credits.  The coin is cleverly packaged in a box that mimics the ACME crate.
  • A $20 silver Looney Tunes™ four-coin set featuring popular characters Sylvester, Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck and Tweety.  This set, which is also available as a subscription, also includes a free Looney Tunes™ wrist watch.
  • A stunning 14-karat gold Bugs Bunny and Friends coin, which brings together several famous characters from the Looney Tunes, including: Bugs Bunny, the Tasmanian Devil, Wile E. Coyote, Daffy Duck and Marvin the Martian. Look closely for a hidden surprise design element in this coin!  As part of this special issue, this coin is accompanied by an exclusive Looney Tunes™ pocket watch.
  • A $2,500 pure gold kilo coin and a $250 silver kilo coin depicting every major character in the Looney Tunes™ pantheon. The design of both coins features selective coloured enamel applied by hand to a coy Bugs Bunny who serves as the central focal point. He is surrounded by a cast of characters which recapture the zany spirit of fun with which Looney Tunes™ is synonymous.
  • And a “$20 for $20” silver coin featuring expert engraving that brings to life Bugs Bunny will be available on May 12, 2015.

Each of the coins have limited mintages and can be ordered from the Mint at 1-800-267-1871 in Canada, 1-800-268-6468 in the US, or online at www.mint.ca/looneytunes. The coins will also be available at the Royal Canadian Mint’s boutiques in Ottawa, Winnipeg and Vancouver, as well as through the Mint’s global network of dealers and distributors/participating Canada Post outlets.

Which Looney Tunes character was your favorite growing up?

Mine was Marvin the Martian hands down. Who’s fortunately featured in the eight-coin 1/2 oz silver subscription… Though I personally like my coins 100+ years old with the only coloring coming from toning – hah!
