Since his debut in the 1942 short, A Tale of Two Kitties, the adorable Tweety has captured the hearts of people young and old, reminding them that even a little guy can outsmart the biggest foe and to be unapologetically yourself.
Created in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, this 1oz pure silver coin features a coloured image of Tweety in order to showcase his notable yellow feathers. Images of a lightning bolt, roses, and a kiss mark are also coloured to highlight his innocent and adorable nature. The coin further includes a special 80th-anniversary logo which has been frosted and a mirror finish background for contrast. The mintage has been set at just 1,942 —to reflect the year the character first flew onto the screen!
The obverse bears the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, confirming its legal tender status. Each coin arrives nestled in yellow velvet, specially made to match the canary. It is placed inside a custom-designed box that includes images of Tweety with the “bad ’ol putty tat” making an appearance on the back. Printed on the box is a Certificate of Authenticity, along with the coin’s unique serial number in the mintage.
Get your hands on this delightful anniversary memento. You won’t get a chance like this again!
