2018 50c Looney Tunes - Tweety Bird 1/2oz Silver Proof Coin

The Perth Mint has just released the third coin in the new Looney Tunes series, featuring TWEETY BIRD.

TWEETY was originally created by Bob Clampett and first appeared in A Tale of Two Kitties in 1942 when he was pitted against two hungry cats Babbit and Catsello, who were based on popular comedians.

TWEETY started his life as a pugnacious personality with little sympathy for his enemies but was eventually softened by Friz Freleng.

Since starring in 47 original Looney Tunes cartoons, TWEETY has appeared in The Sylvester and Tweety Mysteries on the Kids' WB Network, and in Cartoon Network's and Boomerang's The Looney Tunes Show with this animated co-stars, as well as New Looney Tunes.

The coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 1/2oz 99.9% pure silver to proof quality and 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  TWEETY BIRD 2018 1/2oz Silver Proof Coins.

The coins reverse features TWEETY sitting within the concentric rings of the Looney Tunes logo, with his hands resting on his rounded cheeks, along with The Perth Mint's 'P' Mintmark along with the inscription TWEETY BIRD.

The obverse features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the monetary denomination, and the 2018 year-date.
