The enduringly popular SCOOBY-DOO cartoon series premiered in 1969 and is coming back to life in a new five-coin series from the Perth Mint.
- Contains 1 oz of .999 fine Silver.
- Each coin is presented in a clear acrylic case, allowing both sides of the coin to be displayed, and is packaged within a themed shipper. The coin is accompanied by a numbered certificate of authenticity.
- Obverse: Features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2017 year-date, and the monetary denomination.
- Reverse: Features the unlikely four-legged hero as he appeared in the original SCOOBY-DOO series. The design also includes a colored SCOOBY-DOO! logo and The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark.
The series features four teenagers and their rather cowardly yet always loyal Great Dane, SCOOBY-DOO. The talking dog helps his friends solve “supernatural” mysteries, often with the added incentive of his much-loved cookies, Scooby Snacks.
The friends - FRED JONES, DAPHNE BLAKE, VELMA DINKLEY, NORVILLE “SHAGGY” ROGERS and SCOOBY-DOO - travel around in their distinctive hippie-style green van, The Mystery Machine.
In each episode they encounter some “paranormal” antics and decide to investigate. Inevitably the teens and SCOOBY-DOO capture a flesh and blood villain and reveal them as the master of a criminal hoax. The culprit often concludes the show with the memorable line: “And I would have gotten away with it, too, if it hadn't been for you meddling kids!”
