The enduringly popular SCOOBY-DOO cartoon series premiered in 1969. It was released in its original form as 25 episodes over two seasons, ending in 1970.
The series features four teenagers and their rather cowardly yet always loyal Great Dane, SCOOBY-DOO.
The talking dog helps his friends solve “supernatural” mysteries, often with the added incentive of his much-loved cookies, Scooby Snacks.
The friends - FRED JONES, DAPHNE BLAKE, VELMA DINKLEY, NORVILLE “SHAGGY” ROGERS and SCOOBY-DOO - travel around in their distinctive hippie-style green van, The Mystery Machine.
In each episode they encounter some “paranormal” antics and decide to investigate. Inevitably the teens and SCOOBY-DOO capture a flesh and blood villain and reveal them as the master of a criminal hoax. The culprit often concludes the show with the memorable line: “And I would have gotten away with it, too, if it hadn't been for you meddling kids!”
The coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.99% pure silver and issued as legal tender under the authority of the Government of Tuvalu.
The Perth Mint will release no more than 5,000 of the SCOOBY-DOO 2018 1oz Silver Proof Coin.
The coins design features the unlikely four-legged hero as he appeared in the original SCOOBY-DOO series. The design also includes a coloured SCOOBY-DOO! logo.
Each coin is presented in a clear acrylic case, allowing both sides of the coin to be displayed, and is packaged within a themed shipper. The coin is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
