The DC COMICSTM 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 COMICSTM style of the 1980s, this series celebrates one of the most established looks for the DC COMICSTM pantheon of SUPER HEROESTM, including the Amazing Amazon warrior princess, WONDER WOMANTM. Second wave in a dynamic series that has collectors clamouring for more! A tribute to DC COMICS'TM greatest SUPER HEROESTM presented in their classic form!

Established with firm Canadian roots, SUPERMANTM was the first super hero, spawning countless new characters in the DC COMICSTM pantheon, such as WONDER WOMANTM. He was the inspiration for a new archetype that not only still exists today, but is more popular than ever. Many important Canadian visionaries continue to shape WONDER WOMANTM today, lending their talents as storytellers and further building on her history. The reverse design mimics a comic book splash page with its engraved rendition of WONDER WOMANTM. WONDER WOMANTM is a pillar of strength as she stands with her bracelets crossed, ready to deflect anything that may come her way. The application of blue, red and yellow colours over the detailed engraving recreate her iconic costume and symbol, particularly the yellow of her tiara and the Lasso of Truth carried on her hip. Behind her is an engraved view of her island home Themyscira, a.k.a. Paradise Island, while the classic WONDER WOMANTM logo is engraved to her left. A laser halftone pattern adds a modern graphic element that fills the background while infusing the entirety of the design with a classic comic book feel.

New fans welcome! By combining vivid and meaningful packaging with an inspired coin design, this series is an excellent introduction for comic book fans to the world of coin collecting.
