DESIGN:
The reverse image taken from the cover of The Adventures of Superman#596 features perhaps one of the most iconic and enduring images associated with Superman: that of the famous S-shield. A partially obstructed view of Clark Kent allows the focus to remain on his chest as he rips back his shirt to reveal the emblematic S-shield. Colour is used to add depth to the image. The overlapping of Clark Kent’s tie and buttons past the inner image, which is created by a series of concentric circles, further adds to the design’s dynamic movement and helps create the illusion that the emblem is emerging from the coin.
