PORKY PIG was Warner Bros. first cartoon superstar after he began appearing in the Merrie Melodies and Looney Tunes cartoons from 1935 (Year of the Pig!). He debuted in the short I Haven’t Got A Hat and rose to international fame for his adorable antics. This stunning coloured silver coin offers a fun way to celebrate the 2019 Lunar New Year of the Pig while commemorating the classic cartoon character
The reverse of the coin portrays Porky Pig in colour with his arms outstretched. Celebrating the fact that the lunar Year of the Pig falls in both 1935 and 2019, the design also includes the Chinese character for “pig”. On top of the reverse, the inscription: “That’s all Folks”. On the bottom, the inscription: “PORKY PIG” – the name of the coin and of the character. The obverse of the coin depicts the effigy of Her Majesty the Queen Elizabeth II and the inscriptions: “QUEEN ELIZABETH II” – the name of the Queen, “1 DOLLAR” – the face value, “TUVALU” - the issuing country, “2019” – the year of issue and “1oz 9999 Ag” - the weight of the coin and the fineness of the Silver.
