Description

This huge and spectacular 2017 $100 coin from the Royal Canadian Mint is the first ever to appear in the shape of Superman’s iconic diamond shaped S-Shield. The use of transparent enamel allows the engraved collage of action shots to show through the S-Shield’s iconic red sheen. This coin weighs ten ounces of pure silver, with an extremely low mintage is limited to only 1,500 coins.  As a pure silver coin issued by the Royal Canadian Mint, this item is GST/HST exempt.


The Design:

The reverse design of this “diamond”-shaped coin features an engraved rendition of Superman’s shield. Within the “S” of the shield, scenes from several Superman comic books are positioned as a unique collage that highlights Superman’s long and illustrious history; this visual journey through Superman’s different looks and eras is carefully covered by transparent enamel, which allows the engraving to peer through the red sheen of the “S”. A laser halftone pattern behind the shield adds a graphic element that fills the background and infuses design with a classic comic book feel. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt and the words “CANADA”, “2017” and “100 DOLLARS”.
