    I bought this collection because other coins like this sold out fast. If anyone is a super hero fan, or a collector of DC comics this is for you!
    The figures really stand out, the display boxes are pretty cool as well. Another great job by the mint!
    Really pleased with my purchase as well.

    Comments about 1/2 oz. Fine Silver Coloured 4-Coin Subscription - DC Comics™ Originals (2015):

    I like the concept for the coin series however, loses focus simple on the fact that only Superman and SuperWoman(girl) are present on the coins in colour, with others being on the coin however somewhere off in the background. Also a very high mintage to these coins, in turn making them less valuable

    Nice looking coins for anyone who enjoys the DC Comics. The Boxes they come in however could have been a lot better. Not to mention that Supergirl comes in a BatGirl box? Kinda throws off the whole look/collection

    Nice coins, but Super Girl came in a Bat Girl box, hmmm. Sort of ruins the collection for me. One expects the inside to contain the outside Super Hero. Oh well, live and learn. Guess I'll go back to American coins.

      Love that RCM is doing more superhero coins! I just recieved the first coin of the subscription and it's great. Nice detailed box, and a really nice looking silver coin. A hit with all Superman fans!

      I don't understand the other reviews where they complain that this is a money grab. Yes, everyone needs to make money but if you don't like this set of coins then don't buy them, in fact don't even click on the image or link. I don't believe that by bashing this set as boring or a money grab will accomplish anything.

          love the idea of representing the main Superheroes that I grew up with. From a collectors point of view and as with most all coins from the mint, you make way too many of them and devalue, if indeed there was value in the first place .. they all contain silver and I would like to see the mint reflect an average price for that silver in each of their coins. Actually, cu the number of coins of the same subject.
          There are so many variations that it gets confusing and it is getting to be a waste of time and money.

            Thank You another set of Comic Coins that'll definitely go into my personal collection. Wish the Mintage would have been a little lower but hey it is what it is. I collect Colorized Coins and compared to a lot of other coins issued around the World its a really low Mintage. Then you have it issued in Silver what more can one ask for. I do believe though you should issue a few more in this series and only sale it to those that have bought the entire Collection. This way it'll wean out the ones that aren't so serious about collecting the Superman D. C. Comic Series. Other than that the Royal Canadian Mint has did another OUTSTANDING JOB - Congrats!!!

                The Superman coin in the $20 for $20 series, I was not impressed with, but given that a Canadian created Superman, it was within the realm of an appropriate Canadian coin. Batman and Wonder Woman, though? Not so much. This is an example of commercial profit-seeking at its finest. Please leave off with all the Looney Tunes and Disney Princesses and comic book heroes, and go back to some tasteful Canadian content.

                    Hi erniefixx,

                    The "1/2 oz. Fine Silver Coloured Coin - DC Comics™ Originals: Legacy (2015)" coin has already been shipped to most customers who purchased either the 4-Coin Subscription - DC Comics™ Originals (2015) or the single Legacy coin. It hasn't been officially marked as sold out yet, but we anticipate it will be soon. If you haven't already, I recommend visiting our Dealer Locator page (link below) to see if there are any dealers listed that you haven't contacted yet.

                    Hi tink,

                    With the exception of Supergirl, the superheroes pictured on the sides of the boxes are not the ones featured on the coins. The boxes are meant to recreates the look of a well-loved comic book—an added nod to the medium that first introduced these characters, but also a fun element that makes this series a one-of-a-kind collecting experience!
