The coin image, provided by Warner Bros., brings together several main characters from the Looney Tunes pantheon in a design that is reminiscent of the end credits. Faithfully rendered in rich detail with expert engraving and enhanced by the addition of vibrant color, the characters are seen emerging from the circular opening towards the viewer. Bugs Bunny stands in the center with his arms outstretched in a true entertainer’s pose, while below him sits the Tasmanian Devil, whose tongue hangs out of his mouth as he flashes his goofy grin. Peering over Bugs’ right shoulder is the amorous skunk, Pepé Le Pew, accompanied by the black cat who is always the object of Pepé’s affections. Appearing over Bugs’ left shoulder is Daffy Duck and Sylvester, both bearing wide smiles. Last but not least is Tweety, whose diminutive size allows him to sit on Bugs’ head as he extends his arms out as well.
