A finely-detailed recreation of the cover of The Adventures of Superman #596

The cover image of The Adventures of Superman #596, which hit newsstands on September 12, 2001, featured that most iconic Superman image–Clark Kent peeling away his shirt to reveal the symbol that is forever synonymous with Superman.

Despite the cover image (featured on the coin's reverse), the cover tagline states “This is NOT a job for Superman.” This teaser for the story titled “Shipbuilding” alludes to Superman's state of mind in The Adventures of Superman Vol. 1 #596. In the aftermath of the tragic Imperiex War, many question why Superman appears unwilling to participate in the global recovery efforts. After Superman jumps into action to stop a weather catastrophe then rescues a construction worker, he is confronted by President Lex Luthor, who pointedly asks Superman why he doesn't take on all the recovery efforts himself. In response, Superman explains that he has come to the realisation that he is not here to do everything for mankind–otherwise, it would all mean nothing.

A great gift for collectors and Superman fans. Order yours today before they're all gone!

Special features:
•  A finely-detailed recreation of the cover of The Adventures of Superman #596, showcasing the iconic S-shield emblem that is synonymous with Superman.
•  A celebration of the iconic art that has graced the covers of Superman comic books throughout all eras of Superman's tenure, from 1938 to the present.
•  Different finishes and expert engraving bring the dynamic movement of the reverse image to life, creating the impression that the S-shield is projecting from the coin.
•  Advanced engraving techniques are used to frame the image within a series of concentric circles to create added depth and motion to the design.
•  Limited mintage for this 14-karat gold coin is set to only 2,000.
•  A great gift for collectors and Superman fans.

Design:
The reverse image taken from the cover of The Adventures of Superman #596 features perhaps one of the most iconic and enduring images associated with Superman: that of the famous S-shield. A partially obstructed view of Clark Kent allows the focus to remain on his chest as he rips back his shirt to reveal the emblematic S-shield. Colour is used to add depth to the image. The overlapping of Clark Kent's tie and buttons past the inner image, which is created by a series of concentric circles, further adds to the design's dynamic movement and helps create the illusion that the emblem is emerging from the coin.

Did you know…
•  Superman's nemesis, Lex Luthor, ran for President of the United States in the 2000 election. He won but his term didn't last long before he was impeached!
•  The S-shield on the cover of The Adventures of Superman #596 was noticeably different, replacing the yellow background with a black one. It became a symbol of remembrance for those lost in the Imperiex War, which was chronicled in preceding issues.

Since his first appearance in 1938, millions of readers and movie-goers have been captivated by the adventures of Clark Kent and his secret identity as Superman. Safe from the destruction of his home planet Krypton, the infant space traveller was discovered near Smallville, Kansas, by Jonathan and Martha Kent, who raised him as their son. They instilled in him the strong values and beliefs that compel him to use his superhuman abilities for the greater good. As an adult living in the big city of Metropolis, Clark keeps his powers a secret thanks to his persona as a mild-mannered reporter; but as Superman, he becomes a powerful symbol of valour, strength and justice while battling some of the greatest villains of all time.

Why use a cardboard box

4

Why use a cardboard box. The price that you pay and it being a gold coin should warrrant a better box. To show this coin to people the first thing they will see is you having to gently open the cardboard box to show this beatiful coin. Please reconsider future packaging techniques.

I am so glad that I got this coin! Now I have the two full sets of Superman coins - 7 coin set of the 1st series and 4 coin set of the 2nd series. If you REALLY own a coin such as this one, you will rate it 5 out of 5! The lower ratings are from the ones who could not get their hands on one of this coin. Too bad though, I only have one full set of second series coins for myself, and only the silver ones for my dear dad who let me have the ONLY gold coin between us (he has the full set of the 1st series of 7 coins and so do I!). Highly recommend!

Nice piece for a Collection.

The size is a little small, but I understand because of the price of Gold. Nicely presented and very professional looking. I bought the coin as an investment, and may hand it down to my children. I was disappointed that I was only able to get the "1" coin.

The coin is for my personal collection. It took the RCM forever to ship the coin. For the cost of the product, the packaging should have been much better like a wooden box just like they do at the Perth and NZ Mint. Also the COA should have had a slot in the box. The packaging is not very professional to say the least. I am a little disappointed with this purchase from the RCM.

This coin was well worth it... albeit, the acquisition price was way beyond the gold value. Mintage was 2000, which does not place it as a rare nor scarce collectible item. It is sought after by collectors of super heroes (particularly, Superman) memorabilia. Hence, the demand way exceeds the limited supply - driving up the premium value of the coin. This acquisition made me appreciative of being in the Masters Club.

Liked the design of this coin and had to have it. Wish the box was of higher quality material and equipped with a slot to hold the COA. All in all its a great coin.

Packaging is nice. The design is not as attractive as the 2013 gold coin. It would be nice if it has more colour as that for the silver coins
