A FIRST: Supergirl™ on a Canadian coin! Order yours today!

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 the young heroine known as Supergirl™.

Superman™ may be the most powerful being on the planet, with his ability to leap tall buildings and outrun speeding bullets—but what would have happened if he hadn't been raised by the decent, humble souls who instilled in him strong morals and values? What if he arrived on Earth as a teenager, with all the attitude and rebellious tendencies that come with the territory? Well… he'd be Supergirl™.

As the most powerful teenager on the planet, the Girl of Steel™ possesses all of Superman's powers—from superhuman strength, speed and invulnerability, all the way down to his flight and enhanced senses. Still learning to control her awesome powers but lacking her cousin's self-restraint, she may be even more dangerous than the Man of Steel™. Disconnected from a world she's still struggling to comprehend, she has found non-stop action from her very first minute on this planet.

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

Special features:
  • A FIRST! Supergirl on a Canadian coin!
  • ALSO AVAILABLE AS A FOUR-COIN SUBSCRIPTION! Subscribe today and then relax knowing you will receive all four coins (each coin just $54.95)—one per month!
  • INCLUDES LASER ENGRAVING TECHNOLOGY! While selective colour recreates Supergirl's classic look, laser engraving technology on the background elements recreates the look of inked comic book art, while creating a contrast between sheen and shadows that gives the design a multi-layered feel.
  • VINTAGE FEEL EXTENDS TO THE PACKAGING! Each coin in the series 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, but also a fun element that makes this series a one-of-a-kind collecting experience!
  • Your coin is GST/HST exempt.

About the Design:

Your coin mimics a comic book splash page with a coloured and engraved rendition of Supergirl. The Girl of Steel stands cheerfully with hands on her hips, veiling her true power and a strength that rivals Superman's. To her right is a lasered retrospective of Supergirl's history, including her alternate costume from the early 1980s, complete with headband. Also engraved on the reverse within a spiked word balloon are the face value of "10 DOLLARS" and the year "2015".

Did you know…

As Superman's cousin from the Planet Krypton, the teenage Kara Zor-El arrived on Earth many years after Kal-El.

Ultimately, Superman was victorious and returned to Earth with Kara; since then, she has donned a costume inspired by her cousin's one that identifies her as the young heroine in training, Supergirl.

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

        This is NOT Superwoman. Please discard the other reviewer's comments. This is Supergirl.

        I'm fine with the Superman coins. He's iconic, universal, and it makes sense for him to be on a Canadian coin. But Supergirl? Really? That's just taking it too far. Instead of making the existing Superman coins feel special and unique, now they're branching into a whole "super family." It feels tired.

        And seriously, since when is her base of operations in Themyscira? Laughable. What would she be doing in Themyscira?! She's not Wonder Woman.

        I know Supergirl has her own show now, but she's just not big enough for a coin. If they want a DC superhero, it should be limited to Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman. And it should be limited to special occasions like the a big anniversary (75th was a good one).

        The excess of superhero coins now is only succeeding in making the others less cool and valuable. They're no longer rare.

        And finally, the artwork on this coin is BORING. She looks like she's posing for a beauty pageant. Not at all epic!!!!

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

          Finally Superwoman has arrived!! This coin should and must be added to ones personal collection if your into the Superman/Superwoman Series! Again we have a Silver, low mintage, Colorized Coin that will go fast. The series should continue like the Bird Series where we have about 25 to 30 coins attached to all forms of the Comic Series. I do believe the last few should have a very low mintage to attract those who wish to put the complete series together. I will put these in my Personal Collection to be passed on to my Grandson. The RCM deserves a Standing Ovation in taking the initiative to issue this type series for the Serious Coin Collector. Great Job EVERYONE!!
