The fourth release in the Looney Tunes series features SYLVESTER.
Sylvester J. Pussycat Sr., commonly known as SYLVESTER, first pounced on to screens in 1945.
Like many of his stablemates from Leon Schlesinger Productions, SYLVESTER was created by Isadore ‘Friz’ Freleng, who adapted the feline character’s name from the Latin for wild cat, Felis silvestris.
SYLVESTER appeared in 103 cartoons during the golden age of American animation. Three of them in which he starred won Academy Awards, making the tuxedo cat the ‘owner’ of more Oscar statuettes than any other Looney Tunes or Merrie Melodies character.
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 SYLVESTER 2018 1/2oz Silver Proof Coin
The reverse of the coin features SYLVESTER appearing to burst out of the concentric rings of the Looney Tunes 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.
