2017 Canadian $50 DC Comics Originals: The Brave And The Bold Superman 3 oz Reverse Gold-plated Silver Coin


For those who grew up reading DC Comics in the 1970s and early 1980s, this is how you remember them best! SupermanTM, BatmanTM and Wonder WomanTM are the focus of this reverse gold-plated design, which channels the complex storytelling and artistry of Bronze Age comics. Engraved in dimensional detail, Superman leaps into action and rips through the vintage, laser-engraved panels that hint at each character's origin story.

The Royal Canadian Mint is going back to the Bronze Age of Comics to present DC Comics' greatest Super HeroesTM!



RETRO ART MEETS MODERN TECHNIQUES! Traditional engraving brings Bronze Age Superman to life as he bursts through the laser-engraved comic book panels…and seemingly off the coin's surface!
REVERSE GOLD PLATING! Except for Superman at the centre, which shines in pure silver, the golden gleam from the reverse gold-plating subtly hints at the aged look of a vintage comic, but with much more vibrancy and a rich luminosity that highlights all the details!
HOME-GROWN TALENT! Canadian creators Jason Fabok, Darwyn Cooke, and Tom Grummett have all helped to shape Superman's history as artists/writers!
SEEING IS BELIEVING! The combination of engraving, plating and finishes creates a sense of motion and adds texture: it looks and feels like Superman is emerging from the coin's flat surface and racing straight toward the viewer!
MADE BY FANS FOR FANS! It's a heartfelt salute to the timeless nature of these timeless characters, with all the respect and dedication that only the Royal Canadian Mint can provide.
INCLUDES SERIALIZED CERTIFICATE! The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins. Most of these are serialized certifications, meaning that each certificate is given a unique number, starting at 1.
3 OUNCE 99.99% PURE SILVER COIN! Your coin is designed using three ounces of 99.99% pure silver, and it's reverse gold-plated! As well, your coin has no GST/HST!
LOW MINTAGE: Only 3,000 coins will be made worldwide.



Through a layered approach, your coin's design re-visits the artistry of retro DC Comics. In the background, laser engraving re-creates all the details, shadows, nuances and complexities that are characteristic to Bronze Age comics. Each of the re-created panels hint at the origin stories of Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman, and are resplendent in reverse gold plating that adds a golden gleam throughout the reverse—save for the centre image of Superman. Engraved in outstanding detail, Superman shines bright in silver as the Super Hero bursts through the page, revealing a laser halftone pattern behind it. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
