Disney•Pixar Cars - Two New Coins Available!

We are all 'revved up' to announce the launch of the next two coins in our Disney•Pixar Cars coin collection - Mater, the rustiest, trustiest tow truck in Radiator Springs and Doc Hudson as the Fabulous Hudson Hornet™!

Mater 1oz Silver Coin

Mater 1 oz Silver Coin

Mater is the lovable lunk of a 1955 Wrecker who has gone on to headline other films, theme park attractions and even his very own Little Golden Books, including Look Out For Mater! And Deputy Mater Saves the Day! And what was the inspiration for the "world’s best backwards driver"? An old tow truck found along Route 66 in Galena, Kansas. "More than any other character that we've created at Pixar," Lasseter said in 2006, "I’m probably proudest of Mater."

Doc Hudson 1oz Silver Coin

Doc Hudson 1 oz Silver Coin

A delightful 1 oz silver coin, it shows Doc, as the Fabulous Hudson Hornet™ before he slowed down in Radiator Springs, set against an engraved background of the Radiator Springs countryside.

And here's an interesting fact about Doc Hudson that you may not know: his licence plate reads 51HHMD, a reference to his year and track number (51), model (Hudson Hornet), and profession (Medical Doctor)! Sadly, Doc is no longer with us, but his spirit lives on in Radiator Springs.
