Bugs Bunny stands in the center of this coin with his arms outstretched in a true entertainer’s pose, while below him sits the Tasmanian Devil, tongue hanging out of his mouth as he flashes his goofy grin. Peering over Bugs’ right shoulder is Pepé Le Pew, accompanied by the black cat who is always the object of Pepé’s affections.
Appearing over Bugs’ left shoulder are 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.
