Bugs Bunny Gets His Own Coin

In Bugs Bunny we trust?
(The Royal Canadian Mint)
While some may say that it is about time – others are scoffing at the idea of a cartoon character getting his face on a coin. But, here we have it or should I say, here we have rabbit? The Royal Canadian Mint announced earlier this week that they have begun accepting ordes for the latest release within their “$20 for $20” silver coin program, which offers a 99.99% pure silver coin for its legal tender face value of $20.

“The reverse design features an endearing depiction of the iconic cartoon character Bugs Bunny. Inscriptions read '2015', 'Fine Silver 9999 Argent Pur', and the denomination of '20 Dollars'. On the obverse of each coin is the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II designed by Susanna Blunt. Inscriptions include 'Elizabeth II' and 'D G Regina'.” says the Royal Canadian Mint website. “Each coin is struck in 99.99% pure silver and carries a specimen quality finish. The weight is 7.96 grams and the diameter is 27 mm with a serrated edge. A maximum mintage of 350,000 coins has been established with an ordering limit of 5 coins per household. The coins are priced at their legal tender face value of $20 each with free ground shipping.”
