2020 Tuvalu $1 TOM and JERRY 80th Anniv 1oz Silver Proof Coin
A must-have for fans of iconic animation, this fun Tom and Jerry silver coin celebrates 80 years since the adorable duo first appeared on screens. Iconic rivals TOM and JERRY were created in 1940 by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera. First appearing in the Metro Goldwyn Mayer (MGM) one-shot cartoon Puss Gets the Boot, the cat-and-mouse duo were introduced with their current names in the follow-up 1941 short, The Midnight Snack. In each cartoon, Tom the cat would be thwarted in his increasingly rambunctious attempts to catch Jerry the mouse. Struck from 1oz of 99.99% pure silver, The Perth Mint will release no more than 2,500 worldwide.
