Superman is one of the iconic images of the 20th century and beyond, and often seen as the greatest superhero ever created.  He also has strong ties to Canada, having been co-created by Canadian Joe Shuster, together with Jerry Siegel, and first published in 1938. Metropolis was based on the city of Toronto, and the Daily Planet was based on the Toronto Daily Star. This pure silver Canadian $15 coin is based on a classic comic book cover dating from 1972. Although there are millions of Superman fans around the globe, the mintage for this pure silver coin was limited to just 10,000 coins world-wide, and sold out almost immediately from the Royal Canadian Mint. HST/GST exempt.


The Design:

Superman is depicted in the classic iteration of his costume with the famous yellow and red S-shield. With fists clenched and a determined grin, the superhero takes to the skies high above the bustling city below, while his cape flutters behind him. By gently overlapping the inner rim of the image's field, Superman appears to emerge from the coin itself. 


Since his first appearance in 1938, millions of readers and movie-goers have been captivated by the adventures of Clark Kent and his secret identity as Superman. Safe from the destruction of his home planet Krypton, the infant space traveller was discovered near Smallville, Kansas, by Jonathan and Martha Kent, who raised him as their son. They instilled in him the strong values and beliefs that compel him to use his superhuman abilities for the greater good. As an adult living in the big city of Metropolis, Clark keeps his powers a secret thanks to his persona as a mild-mannered reporter; but as Superman, he becomes a powerful symbol of valour, strength and justice while battling some of the greatest villains of all time
