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

A hapless hunter that is easily duped, Elmer J. Fudd is the perfect foil to Bugs Bunny’s easy-going demeanour and wily antics. Starting with Bugs Bunny’s first appearance in 1940, the two share a long history of antagonizing one another that plays out to great laughs in many cartoons together—but none quite as beloved and iconic as the animated masterpiece The Rabbit of Seville, which is depicted on this coin’s reverse.

Released in theatres on December 16, 1950, The Rabbit of Seville was the first Looney Tunes short to parody a classic opera—but wouldn’t be the last! The story takes place at the Hollywood Bowl; pursued by Elmer Fudd, Bugs Bunny tries to elude the hunter by tricking him into venturing on-stage just before a staged production of Rossini’s most famous opera, The Barber of Seville. Through escalating gags and barbershop antics that could only exist in the imagination, Bugs takes control and stages his own version of the opera—at Elmer’s expense, of course.

Remarkably, Rossini’s overture was left fairly intact, with the exception of some light editing to remove repetitive passages and a slightly sped-up tempo that helps the action stay within a six-minute running length. The battle is an animated tour de force, with comedic storytelling timed perfectly to the music of a celebrated opera.

These cartoon capers have made us all laugh, and also introduced classical music and opera to many who would have never known Rossini’s The Barber of Seville, had it not been for one “wascally wabbit” and a hapless hunter.

Special features:
•   An ode to a classic Looney Tunes cartoon, the design depicts a scene from The Rabbit of Seville featuring Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd.
•   Crafted from 99.99% pure silver, this coin is striking thanks to the combined use of selective colour, expert engraving and multiple finishes.

•   Your coin is GST/HST exempt.

About the Design:
The reverse image, provided by Warner Bros., brings together selective colouring and expert engraving in this ode to the famous and much-loved Looney Tunes short, The Rabbit of Seville. Seen in side-profile and in colour, Elmer Fudd is seated in a barber chair as he leans forward to peer into a mirror held up by a self-possessed Bugs Bunny; upon seeing his reflection, he is shocked to find Bugs’ barbershop antics have resulted in a flowery “mane” of bright red flowers on the top of his bald head. Enhanced by the use of multiple finishes, the engraved background offers a depiction of the stage setting, as seen in the 1950 animated short.

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

          I was so pleasantly surprised when I first looked at this coin. It is large but there is a clarity to the design that really makes it shine. Creative packaging adds to the happiness.

            I got this coin about a week ago.. it's quite a beautiful coin and displays very nicely.. wooden box is really nice as well.. my only complaint is that the interior packaging that holds the coin in place is plastic and doesn't allow the coin to be displayed properly in a standing/slanted position.. should of been made same way as all other RCM coin boxes inside.. but still giving it 5 stars as it's the coin that really shines here...

                  Nice sized coin with a classic Looney Tunes scene. Loved watching these growing up. Like the lower mintage. A good follow-up would be ,the Rabbit in Red (Bugs as Red Riding Hood)

                      Love the whole series, this offering did not disappoint, going to have a Looney Tunes clean sweep in my collection. Can't wait to see my favourite characters , the esteemed Wile E Coyote and Road Runner, on the last coin. Love the weight of the coin, the detail of the differing finishes, the display box, the graphics, and the inventive, secret ACME design feature of the crate. Its ALLLL good!
