In a minting first, the Royal Canadian Mint has issued a unique 10oz silver tribute to Superman - the world's most iconic hero.
It is the ultimate re-creation of a near-universal symbol for hope: Superman's iconic emblem leaps off the pages and into your collection with this S-Shield-shaped coin! The image is unmistakable, thanks to the application of red enamel along the "S". Take a closer look: the bold colour is transparent, revealing a collage of comic book action scenes that chart Superman's evolution through the ages, and all engraved in incredible detail!
This diamond-shaped silver coin is a fantastic recreation of Superman's iconic shield emblem. At a weighty 10 ounces of 99.99% silver perhaps you'll need super-strength to lift this magnificent $100 masterpiece.
The distinctive 'S' of the shield is realised using red enamel. This enamel is partially transparent, revealing a dynamic collage of action-packed poses from Superman's comic origins. Look closely and you'll see the Man of Steel's unforgettable first appearance on the front of Action Comics #1. How many of the scenes do you recognise?
A laser halftone pattern behind the shield adds a graphic background element, imbuing the design with a classic comic book feel.
The reverse features the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II by Ian Rank-Broadley.
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded standard case with a graphic beauty box.
