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! Mintage for this one-ounce 99.99% fine silver coin is only 10,000, making it a great gift for collectors and Superman fans alike.

The Design:

This striking coin is inspired by the cover of Superman Annual #1. In this image, we see Superman of the New 52 universe as though he is bursting to life from the surface of the coin. As flashes of lightning crash around him, his intense gaze conveys his superhuman strength. His familiar red cape billows behind him as he moves away from the Fortress of Solitude in the background. The use of advanced engraving techniques and brilliant colour bring to life this fierce image of Superman, and pay tribute to the Royal Canadian Mint’s excellency in craftsmanship.
