PORKY PIG was Warner Bros. first cartoon superstar, symbolising Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies in the era of black and white animation.
PORKY PIG debuted in the 1935 short I Haven’t Got a Hat. He starred in dozens of films before the decade was out.
Struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz 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 Lunar PORKY PIG 2019 1oz Silver Proof Coin.
The coin’s reverse portrays PORKY PIG in colour with his arms outstretched beneath the inscriptions “That’s all Folks!” and “PORKY PIG”.
