Description

Superman™ is one of the iconic images of the 20th century and beyond, and often seen as the greatest superhero ever created.  This new coin issued by the Royal Canadian Mint is a $20 denomination featuring selective full colour, and weighs just over one full ounce of pure silver.  Mintage is limited to just 10,000 coins, and previous Superman coins have all sold out very quickly and appreciated in value in the secondary market.  As a pure silver coin issued by the Royal Canadian Mint, this item is GST/HST exempt.

   

The Design:
The reverse image recreates the 2013 cover of Superman Unchained #2, and features Superman displaying a great feat of strength as he lifts a tank over his head with one arm.. A series of concentric circles frame the reverse, adding depth to the overall design and creating the illusion that Superman is racing out from the coin at breakneck speed towards the viewer.

Superman:

Not only does Superman use most of his powers in this issue, he also shows how proficient he has become in their use, deploying them in a creative and intelligent manner.  In this issue, Batman makes an appearance to add his perspective on Superman's current situation, as the Man of Steel deals with a new foe who may possess strength that exceeds his own.

Meticulous engraving replicates the finer details of the original artwork features - vibrant colour in its depiction of Superman in action, battling a corrupt and covert military force. 

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 traveler 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.
