Limited 2014 Iconic Superman 3/4 Oz Fine Silver 15$ Coin 1 Action Comics 419
Mint Condition with Original Box and Certificate of Authenticity. DC Comics (reverse), Susanna Blunt (obverse). Superman is the superhero alter-ego of Clark Kent, and widely considered a cultural icon. Superman first appeared in Action Comics #1 (June 1938) and since has appeared in various television programs, films, newspaper strips, and video games. Superman can usually be found wearing a blue costume and red cape, with a stylized red-and-yellow "S" shield on his chest. This shield has been used extensively to symbolize the character. Superman was born on the planet Krypton, before being rocketed to Earth as an infant by his biological father, just before Krypton is destroyed. Found and adopted by a Kansas farmer and his wife, the child is raised as Clark Kent, and taught strong moral values. Very early in his childhood, Clark began to display his superhuman abilities, which he eventually resolved to use for the greater good. As Clark Kent, he is a journalist for the Daily Planet, a Metropolis newspaper based in the fictional city of Metropolis. Superman's primary love interest is Lois Lane, and his archenemy is supervillain and millionaire Lex Luthor. Superman has captured our imaginations, and has fascinated cultural theorists, commentators, and critics worldwide. Superman has been hailed as the foundation for our contemporary understanding of superheroes! This striking coin commemorates Superman as he appeared on the cover of Action Comics #419 in 1972. In this image Superman is depicted in his iconic costume with the yellow and red S-shield, taking to the sky like a bullet of superhuman strength.
A gentle overlapping technique allows for Superman to appear as though he is emerging from the coin itself, adding dynamism to the illustration. The use of advanced engraving techniques and brilliant colour bring to life this iconic image of Superman, and pay tribute to the Royal Canadian Mint's excellency in craftsmanship. Limited mintage for coin, struck in two-thirds of an ounce of 99.99% fine silver, is only 10,000, which makes it a great gift for collectors and Superman fans alike.
