The Perth Mint is excited to release the first coin in our new Looney Tunes series, featuring BUGS BUNNY.

One of the iconic characters of the golden age of American animation, BUGS BUNNY shot to fame after starring in Looney Tunes and later Merrie Melodies short films.

His immense popularity earned BUGS BUNNY the role of official mascot for Warner Bros. Entertainment and the wise-cracking grey and white trickster even has his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Purity and Issue Limit

Struck by The Perth Mint from 1/2oz of 99.99% pure silver, the coin is issued as legal tender under the authority of the Government of Tuvalu.

The Perth Mint will release no more than 5,000 of the BUGS BUNNY 2018 1/2oz Silver Proof Coin.

Design

The reverse of the coin features BUGS BUNNY reclining with a carrot and the Looney Tunes vector logo in the background. The design also includes the BUGS BUNNY inscription and The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark.

The Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2018 year-date and the monetary denomination are depicted on the coin’s obverse.
