The Royal Dutch Mint offers an exclusive silver round for sale that honors the 80th anniversary of one of the most well-known animated duos in history. In 1940, Tom & Jerry made their debut in animated shorts that followed the escapades of a cat and mouse battling it out with one another. The animated cat-and-mouse game that played out between the two in each short was enhanced by the combination of music and sound effects that added to the humor of the series.

The animated shorts featuring Tom and Jerry were the creation of famed duo William Hanna and Joseph Barbera. The original run for the animated duo was between 1940 and 1958. Following the closure of MGM cartoon studios in 1957 and the final release in 1958, Tom & Jerry would go on to experience revivals in 1961-1962, 1963-1967, 197501977, 1980-1982, and 1990-1994 with various companies. Warner Bros. has controlled the Tom & Jerry franchise since 2006, with the most recent release being a 2021 live-action feature film.
All of the 1 oz Silver Tom & Jerry 80th Anniversary Rounds available here come to you in protective plastic capsules. The rounds have a special lenticular design that enables both Tom and Jerry to feature on the obverse independently, based on your viewing angle. As you rotate the round in your hand, the images switch back and forth between Tom and Jerry.
The obverse side of Silver Tom & Jerry 80th Anniversary Rounds features the images of the titular characters. As you rotate the round and see the face of Jerry, you will get a right-profile image of the cartoon mouse. As you continue rotating, this will switch over to feature a left-profile portrait of the cartoon cat, Tom.
On the reverse face of 1 oz Silver Tom & Jerry Rounds is the 80th-anniversary logo. The series name is featured above the design with silhouettes of Tom and Jerry chasing one another around the field. The identifying hallmarks are also on this side.
