PORKY PIG was Warner Bros. first cartoon superstar, symbolising Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies in the era of black and white animation. PORKY PIG debuted in the 1935 short I Haven’t Got a Hat and starred in dozens of films before the decade was out.
The coin’s reverse portrays PORKY PIG in colour with his arms outstretched beneath the inscriptions “That’s all Folks!” and “PORKY PIG”, as well as The Perth Mint ‘P’ mintmark. 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’.
Struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.99% pure silver, no more than 5,000 of the Lunar PORKY PIG 2019 1oz Silver Proof Coin will be issued.
