Looney Tunes coins are bring released through 2018 from the Perth Mint in Western Australia. This outstanding coin series will be five coins, each coin featuring a different Looney Tunes character.

Mintage per coin is five thousand pieces. The coins are minted to the high quality 0.9999 fine silver specification, and come with a certificate of authenticity.

The obverse of each coin is the Ian Rank-Braodley effigy of Queen Elizabeth II.
The Tuvalu dollar is traded at the same rate as the Australian dollar.
One disappointment is there is a link for the series, but the image used for the first coin of Bugs Bunny reclining is not the image shown for the series. It appears the images on the series information page simply shows us the characters being used, not the image that will appear on the actual coin. Still, this series will not disappoint.
In addition to individual coin purchasing, a subscription is available.
