The hit movie Cars tells the tale of a hotshot race car who finds himself trapped in the small and dusty California town, Radiator Springs. Lightning McQueen has his sights sets on winning the Piston Cup, and cant focus on anything outside of winning and being the best. He unknowingly finds himself running into a racing legend who has won several Piston cups in his day, Doc Hudson. The 2017 Proof Niue Disney-Pixar Cars Doc Hudson 1 oz Silver Coin features the old race car in his glory days. Each of the coins in the Disney-Pixar series contains 1 Troy oz of .999 pure silver and has a face value of $2 that is fully backed by the Niue government.
When Lightning McQueen accidentally finds himself in the small and quiet town of Radiator Springs, he makes a really poor impression on the residents of the town. He finds himself landing in court, after he causes destruction and mayhem in the small town. The judge presiding over his case is a grouchy old hotrod who just so happens to be a legend of the race circuit, and the first-ever Piston Cup winner.
McQueen eventually learns Doc Hudsons true identity and asks him to help him win the Piston Cup. Doc Hudson refuses at first, unwilling to return to that world. After some time, Doc has a change of mind and heart. He works with McQueen to help him learn what truly matters in life, and its not all about winning the Piston Cup.
