First appearing in October of 1950, Peanuts was the brainchild of Charles M. Schulz. Presenting a unique, ironic social commentary on the USA, its array of quirky, distinctive characters like Charlie Brown and Snoopy quickly captured the public imagination. At its height, the strip was published in more than 2,500 newspapers across 75 countries, was translated into 21 languages, and had an audience of over 350 million people! Attracting fans over several generations, inspiring countless other cartoonists, and crucial in establishing the 4-panel comic strip as standard in the US, Charles M. Schulz’s Peanuts has been described as the most popular and most influential work in the field.
Still immensely popular…
Although the last Peanuts comic strip was published in February 2000 – the 17,897th Peanuts strip, published a day after Schulz’s death – this highly original, somewhat eccentric cartoon maintains a powerful following. Still seen in newspapers, as well as the TV specials, the ongoing popularity of the cartoon has ensured that the field of Peanuts memorabilia is very strong. With this in mind, there is no doubt that the Niue 2010 $2 Peanuts 60th Anniversary 1oz Silver Proof Collection will provoke huge demand.
