Superman comes to the rescue in the issue's first story, Superman versus Luthor, after Metropolis is rocked by its first ever earthquake! After Superman helps with rescue efforts, Clark Kent discovers that a powerful new laser weapon that is coveted by none other than his nemesis, Luthor, caused the tremor. The evil mastermind challenges Superman to a battle that pits our hero's Kryptonian powers against Luthor's scientific weaponry: if Superman wins, Luthor will admit defeat but if Superman loses, the caped hero must retire from his crime-fighting ways. Superman then performs incredible feats including outpacing super-speed planes, leaping high beyond the stratosphere, even surviving an exploding grenade—but the contest turns out to merely be a distraction, allowing Luthor's henchman to steal the device. Will Superman be able to find Luthor and retrieve the laser before it can cause more destruction? It just might take another incredible feat of strength to save the day…

Did you know…
•    Clark's workplace, previously identified as The Daily Star, is now referred to as The Daily Planet.
•    Lex Luthor, Superman's second recurring nemesis, was first introduced in 1940; he is presented as an evil genius that hails from a floating city suspended by a dirigible.
•    In this issue and Luthor's other appearance that same year in Action Comics #23, Luthor sports a full head of red hair!

Special features:
•    Superman is a "pillar" of strength for a devastated Metropolis in this recreation of the cover of Superman #4, which was published in early 1940.
•    A gold coin for a Golden Age Superman! Meticulous engraving replicates the finer details of the original artwork, while brilliant colour infuses the reverse with energy and helps recreate the comic's look and feel.
•    Advanced engraving techniques are used to frame the image within a series of concentric circles to create added depth and motion to the design.

About the Design:
As seen on the iconic cover of Superman #4 (1940), the reverse image features Superman performing an impressive feat of strength. Wearing his blue and red uniform with the original iconic 'S' shield, Superman responds to chaos in Metropolis by hoisting a building's crumbling pillars above his head as citizens scramble around him to find safety. The striking image is a telling showcase of Superman's incredible powers and is brought to life through finely detailed engraving and vibrant colour. A series of concentric circles frame the reverse, adding depth to the overall design and creating the illusion that Superman is poised to step out of the coin, while the circled rim includes the engraved face value "100 DOLLARS", the word "CANADA" and the year "2015".

Packaging:
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded customer paperboard box.

        I have it displayed in my coin case. Superman is iconic and it shines. I don't think you can go wrong with the purchase of a gold coin with a popular superhero on it. It will retain its value. I bought it to enjoy, not as an investment.

          This coin is unique. The Man Of Steel is in Action. I have been waiting for something like this in Gold. The last one RCM minted was action comics #1 from 1938 on Silver. Should have been in Gold. Nevertheless this one really defines The Man Of Steel... An incredible feat of strength to save the day... Superman hoisting the building's crumbling pillars above his head as citizens scramble around him to find safety after Metropolis is rocked by its first ever earthquake! The first Superman coin was special back in 2013, 2014 was good, but this ones special. Look closely at the advanced engraving techniques used by the RCM... The crumbling pillars, building falling apart, citizens running for safety... Well done RCM. The packaging is the same as the 2013 Gold Coin and like it you need to know how to position the box to display the coin. I just can't wait to get my hands on this coin like I did with the other 2...

          Glad I got two of these, should be able to flip one and make my money back no problem, the others a freebie. Nice to have the complete Superman collections for all three years, the gold ones were a challenge to score at issue price, but what a beauty and worth hunting around for. The RCM needs to issue a wooden display box to do these justice.
