About each coin design:

First coin: SUPERMANTM

Your coin's design mimics a comic book splash page with its engraved rendition of SUPERMANTM. Standing with legs apart and fists clenched, SUPERMANTM radiates strength and resolve as he lifts his eyes to the skies. The application of blue, red and yellow colour over the detailed engraving recreates his iconic costume and S-Shield as his red cape swirls around him with each movement. On the left, the Silver-Age Fortress of Solitude rises up behind SUPERMANTM, while the classic SUPERMANTM telescopic logo is seen on the right side. A laser halftone pattern adds a modern graphic element that fills the background while infusing the entirety of the design with a classic comic book feel.

Second coin: WONDER WOMANTM

Your coin's design mimics a comic book splash page with its engraved rendition of WONDER WOMANTM. WONDER WOMANTM is a pillar of strength as she stands with her bracelets crossed, ready to deflect anything that may come her way. The application of blue, red and yellow colours over the detailed engraving recreate her iconic costume and symbol, particularly the yellow of her tiara and the Lasso of Truth carried on her hip. Behind her is an engraved view of her island home Themyscira, a.k.a. Paradise Island, while the classic WONDER WOMANTM logo is engraved to her left. A laser halftone pattern adds a modern graphic element that fills the background while infusing the entirety of the design with a classic comic book feel.

Third coin: BATMANTM

Your coin mimics a comic book splash page with its engraved rendition of BATMANTM. With arms outstretched and knees bent, BATMANTM fearlessly soars into action against the GOTHAM CITYTM skyline. The application of blue, grey and yellow colouring over the detailed engraving recreate his iconic costume and symbol, while the alternating shades of blue and black add shadowing to his bat-like webbed cape. To the far right, the classic BATMANTM logo is engraved just above the skyscrapers, while a laser halftone pattern adds a modern graphic element in the background that infuses the entirety of the design with a classic comic book feel.

Packaging:

Your coins are encapsulated and presented in a one-of-a-kind collector case that features an exciting glow-in-the-dark BATMANTM Emblem! Ships with your first coin!

      Packaging very disappointing. Coins should have came in individually boxes like when purchased individually. Collector case okay, not wowed but when purchasing subscription should get collector box and individual boxes not cheap plastic sleeves.

        Comments about 1 oz. Pure Silver Coloured 3-Coin Subscription – DC ComicsTM Originals (2016):

        Save yourself the trouble and buy the coins separately. When you get the subscription you get a collector box that is extremely disappointing. The inside of the box scratches very easily, coins move around, slot for certificates not deep enough so they stick out, quality is just terrible and honestly why a huge Batman sign? This is the trinity set not a Batman set, I just don't get it. Not only is the collector box disappointing but the individual coins are shipped in a plastic sleeve, not in an individual box like the other DC coins. If you buy them separately you get the beautiful individual boxes with the velvet finish inside each box. I will be returning the subscription coins and will be buying them individually so I get the separate boxes.

          Why is it that the coins are to small in the slots where the coins go. The coins move in the place where you put the coin why. Shouldn't the coin fit snug so the don't fall out?
          I notice a lot of your holder that supply free holders with subscription. Not good.

              This is another Terrific Subscription Series I'm going to be proud of enough to put into my own personal collection. This is what I love about collecting coins either you love them or you don't. Which in this case is a must for all DC Comic Lovers of Superman, Wonderwoman, Batman or Superwoman. I'd still like to see the Joker or some of the other characters the three have to battle. Not only have you continued the series but have issued them with a low mintage. The packaging is a first of it's kind that I know of and is well done. Please continue this series for us who love DC Comic's and it's complete series. This collection of coins from the first ones issued till now is ONE FIRST CLASS SERIES OF COINS IN THEIR OWN RIGHT!!! Great job everyone:-) This is why I'm proud to say I'm a Numismatist.

              • Q:

                I agree the coins do fall out easy on the 3 Coin Subscription Set glow in the dark box. With that said will the Royal Canadian Mint allow us to buy the individual boxes for the 3 Coin Set so that way we don't have to worry about dropping the coins when someone picks up the set to look at?

              • Q:

                Hello, I received my collector case. Is there more than one collector case? I was hoping to have the Superman glowing design in the front as per your image but I got what I consider the plain case with no colored design. My first coin also sits loosely in the case and cannot be stored properly without having the coin fall out. I also expected to receive the individual box for each coin as per the display when I ordered. I read the other questions however I would like to obtain the individual box which I recently saw at our local Canada Post outlet.
                Thank you

                I just received my first coin. It came in a plastic sleeve, NOT in the custom printed comic theme box shown. And, despite saying it in several places in the advertising, I also did NOT receive the advertised display case with the first coin. Advertising is not matching the reality and that is frankly unusual for you all since you are usually so spot on! What happened here??

                  Hi Matthew!
                  For the 3-coin subscription, you only get the subscription case (Glow-in-the dark case). We will adjust this, as it is misleading!
                  Due to shipping complications, the coin and case needed to be shipped separately. You should be getting your subscription case soon!

                  Sorry for the inconvenience on this one.

                  It can be either! There is a lid that slips on and off for display purposes. It's your choice how you'd like them stored/displayed.

              • Q:

                Looking at your display seems like these coins come with individual graphic boxes along with one box that displays all three coins with a subscription. Can you confirm that the individual boxes will be provided with a subscription or are these for individual purchases which do not seem to be available at this time. Thank you!
