An ode to a classic Looney Tunes cartoon! Order today before they’re all gone!

They’ve become a pop culture reference: an antagonist that tries repeatedly to capture the protagonist, but fails spectacularly. In the minds of generations of fans, Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner are forever locked in an endless chase—one in which the luckless Wile E. creates elaborate schemes to capture the speeding bird as it zooms by without much sense of the danger it could have been in. It all started with the Looney Tunes cartoon titled Fast and Furry-ous, which is depicted on the coin’s reverse.

Released on September 17, 1949, Fast and Furry-ous marked the first ever appearance of Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner. The animated short began as a parody of the “cat-and-mouse” chase capers that were so predominant at the time, but it quickly evolved into one of the most renowned chases of all time. Yet all the classic gags are featured from the start; except for the famous dropped anvil, Fast and Furry-ous featured a fall off a cliff, a misfiring rocket, a painted tunnel that miraculously allows the prey to pass through but stops the pursuer cold, and even a scene where one character runs into an obstacle head-on—as was about to occur in the image featured on the coin’s reverse.

In all Coyote/Road Runner cartoons, the storylines generally stick to these concepts: there is no dialogue, save for the expression of pain and Road Runner’s iconic “beep, beep” vocalization; Coyote could only be harmed by his own failings or that of the various ACME products he’d resort to, and his humiliation was always greater than the pain. Although there were a few exceptions, Road Runner always travelled along a road.

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

Special features:
•   The reverse design pays tribute to the iconic Coyote/Road Runner cartoons by depicting a scene from a Looney Tunes cartoon that marked their first ever appearance.
•   Crafted from 99.99% pure silver, this coin is striking thanks to the combined use of selective colour, expert engraving and multiple finishes.
•   Each coin comes packaged in a box that mimics an AMCE crate, which was a fixture in Looney Tunes shorts whenever Wile E. Coyote would have a contraption shipped to him!
•   A fun and easy way to introduce coin collecting to children.
•   A sentimental gift for any Looney Tunes fan, particularly for those with fond memories of this classic duo.
•   A wonderful collectible for those with a passion for animation and its history.
•   Your coin is GST/HST exempt.

About the Design:
The reverse image, provided by Warner Brothers, showcases the antagonistic pairing of Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner in a scene from their first Looney Tunes short, Fast and Furry-ous (1949). The use of selective colour brings the engraved Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote to life. Staring at the viewer with an incredulous look on his face, Wile E. Coyote has held out a lid in front of Road Runner in hopes that it will slow the bird. Seen in side-profile, Road Runner smiles knowingly as he stops just short of the lid, seizing quickly that his pursuer might not be as clever as he thinks he is. 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.

      .999 or .9999 must be printed on each coin. I don't mind if there's a COA on them but I treat my coins as jewelries

          Fantastic coin series , too bad that six weeks after release, the RCM had still failed to deliver on my subscription, so I cancelled. Ordered the last two coins from Canada Post and had them in less than four days. Way to go RCM, you hit a home run with the design and execution of the coins, but struck out with the delivery.

            Growing up was a Wile E. Coyote fan. This coin brings back those memories and so much more.

            A great coin, and a welcome addition to any collection or as a gift

                    I really love this series and think that the 2oz silver is perfect.
                    It really has great detail and the finish is beautiful.
