The DC Comics Originals series has a classic, slightly retro style, recalling the look most comic book fans grew up with and remember fondly. Basing itself on the DC Comics style of the 1980s, this series celebrates one of the most established looks for the DC Comics pantheon of superheroes, including those featured on this fine silver coin, which conveys how Superman’s fate is shaped by his supporting cast.
- First wave in an exciting new series! Celebrate DC Comics greatest superheroes presented in their classic form, just the way you love them!
- Royal Canadian Mint first! First appearance of BatmanTM and Wonder WomanTM on a Canadian coin!
- Where the past and present meet! Traditional engraving and finishes meet selective colour and cutting-edge laser engraving, giving this coin depth and the illusion of movement.
- Vintage feel extends to the packaging! Each coin in the series comes enclosed in unique packaging that recreates the look of a well-loved comic book an added nod to the medium that first introduced these characters, but also a fun element that makes this series a one-of-a-kind collecting experience!
The reverse design mimics a comic book splash page with a coloured and engraved rendition of SupermanTM, flanked by those who helped forge his legacy. The Man of TomorrowTM stands in the centre in a calm yet powerful stance; at the bottom on either side are scenes from his infancy, with the Els to the right and the Kents to the left. Also found to his left are his friend and long-time love interest Lois Lane, and friend and closest ally Batman. On Superman’s right are his pal Jimmy Olsen and Wonder Woman, whose strength and power often rival his own.
