An ideal gift for any fan of comic books! Order yours today!

A doomed planet. Desperate scientists. Their last hope. A kindly couple. Superman.

The DC Comics™ Originals series has a classic, slightly retro style, recalling the look most comic book fans grew up with and remember fondly. Basing itself on the DC Comics style of the 1980s, this series celebrates one of the most established looks for the DC Comics pantheon of super heroes, including those who have helped shape Superman's fate.

Saved from certain doom by his birth parents, the House of El would be preserved in the infant Kal-El, who was rocketed away from Planet Krypton. Forming his strong moral compass, his adoptive parents, the Kents, would teach him what it is to be human as Clark Kent. As Superman, his friends and allies remind him of the responsibility of his power, and help him stay true to his never-ending mission.

Crafted from 99.99% pure silver, this coin makes a wonderful gift for any fan of comic books, DC Comics™ and timeless super heroes! Available as a single or subscription, order yours today!

  • A FIRST! First appearance of Batman™ and Wonder Woman™ on a Canadian coin!
  • While selective colour recreates Superman's classic look, laser engraving technology applied to the secondary characters recreates the look of inked comic book art, while the contrast between sheen and shadows allows the characters to emerge from the background as part of the design's multi-layered feel.
  • Where the past and present meet! Traditional engraving and finishes meet selective colour and cutting-edge laser engraving, giving this coin depth and the illusion of movement.
  • Made by fans for the fans! A nod to these classic characters, with all the respect and devotion that only the Royal Canadian Mint can provide!
  • VINTAGE FEEL EXTENDS TO THE PACKAGING!

About the Design:

Your coin mimics a comic book splash page with a coloured and engraved rendition of Superman, flanked by those who helped forge his legacy. The Man of Tomorrow™ stands in the centre in a calm yet powerful stance; at the bottom on either side are scenes from his infancy, with the Els to the right and the Kents to the left. Also found to his left are his friend and long-time love interest Lois Lane, and friend and closest ally Batman. On Superman's right are his pal Jimmy Olsen and Wonder Woman™, whose strength and power often rival his own. Also engraved on the reverse within a spiked word balloon are the face value of "10 DOLLARS" and the year "2015".

Did you know…

Look! Up in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! It's Superman™!

Endowed with a multitude of super powers—including strength, speed, flight, invulnerability as well as his renowned X-ray and heat vision—Superman is easily the most powerful being on the planet, but his amazing abilities are also a melancholic reminder of how different he is from the people he is dedicated to protecting. A universal icon, Superman means different things to the many diverse people he inspires, whether he is viewed as an alien entity, an immigrant from a faraway land who is just looking to help, or as a country boy fighting the never-ending battle for truth and justice.

  • Superman's first appearance preceded Batman's by only one year in 1938
  • Lois Lane appeared alongside Superman in Action Comics #1, making her Superman's longest lasting supporting character
  • Superman's pal, Jimmy Olsen, had his own DC COMICS™ title in the 1950s
  • Wonder Woman's first appearance was in All-Star Comics #8 in 1941

Packaging:

Your coin comes enclosed in unique packaging that recreates the look of a well-loved comic book—an added nod to the medium that first introduced these characters, and also a fun element that makes this series a one-of-a-kind collecting experience!

Love Superman. I think the coin Superman should be bigger because its would represent the strength of being big and strong. It would be okay to pay more for a bigger coin. :)

When does it ship? I ordered it in September. Does the date above 01-12-2015 mean January 12 2015 or December 1 2015?

Gift for christmas

Thank you for your question. This coin will commence shipping on December 1, 2015.

I am looking at this superman coin and the $20 superman coin. I see the $20 coin comes with packaging for authenticity but also weighs less, assuming that means it has less silver, but is stamped as worth $20. This weighs more, but is stamped at only $10 and I can't seem to find in the pic's anything about authenticity. Which is the better coin as a collectible? I've never bought a coin before and am confused. Thanks for your help.

To a collector, a coin can be precious for many reasons. Some collectors make their purchase decisions based on rarity or "mintage" (the total number of coins produced of a given design), while others might choose a coin for its weight in silver or gold, or simply for its value as a work of art. Ultimately, the decision of which coin to purchase is a personal one, and will be influenced by your interests and design preferences. All Royal Canadian Mint coins come with a Certificate of Authenticity. For more information on coin collecting, visit: http://www.mint.ca/store/mint/learn/collecting-coins-1100002#.VlSVjHarSUk
