A wonderful collectible for those with a passion for animation and its history. Order today!

Appearing together in more than 40 cartoons from the classic series, Sylvester the Cat and Tweety Bird have created a wealth of memorable scenes as the tuxedo cat typically pays the price for his instinct-driven pursuit of the little yellow canary. Beneath Tweety’s sweet exterior lies a resourceful resilience, which begs the question: who is more tormented, the little canary or the feckless feline?

Premiering on August 10, 1957, Birds Anonymous—as featured on the coin’s reverse—is remarkable for its suspenseful opening scenes that play up contrasts between shadows and light. The story itself begins quite dramatically: in the darkness, Sylvester the Cat appears to be victorious in capturing Tweety by plucking him out of his cage. But in true Looney Tunes fashion, Sylvester is stopped in his tracks when a crimson-coloured cat appears at the window and explains that a cat’s desire to eat a bird is purely an addiction—and one that can be overcome. After attending a meeting with other bird-eating “addicts,” Sylvester sets out to overcome his cravings but a series of events will test his resolve, pushing Sylvester to the breaking point as he tries to repress his hunger for Tweety. The winner of the 1957 Academy Award for Best Animated Short Subject (Cartoon), Birds Anonymous has long been a favourite among the animated duo’s fans, who can’t help but feel sympathetic to the cat as he battles against his own very nature!

About the Design:
The reverse image, provided by Warner Brothers, depicts a scene from the Looney Tunes cartoon Birds Anonymous (1957). Rendered in finely detailed engraving and selective colour, the scene is one that makes a playful use of shadows and light. Peering out at the viewer as though they have caught him in the act, Sylvester stands frozen with eyes wide open, and one hand wrapped around Tweety. Tweety is also facing the viewer, with an expression of shock on his face after being plucked from his cage by the hungry cat, and yet stunned by the interruption that may have just spared him his life. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Packaging:
Your coin is encapsulated, and presented in an ACME wood crate with a graphic beauty box.

                      I unequivocally love this coin. The iconic scene from 'Birds Anonymous' is poignant. This move won the 1957 Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film. The coin's large size showcases the engraving beautifully. I'm a coin collect and I bought this coin to honour of my tuxedo cat (like Sylvester), Butler.
