A WORLD'S FIRST! Introducing the world's very first Superman sculpture coin! Order today!

You've seen him in flight and in action; you've seen him perform incredible feats, whether hoisting vehicles or withstanding a hail of bullets; you've seen different versions of him, from Golden Age to New 52—but you've never seen him quite like this. To mark the fifth anniversary of his Canadian numismatic debut, Superman dramatically breaks OUT of this coin's reverse, where the most influential character of all time is re-imagined in SCULPTURAL form! We're breaking new ground with this statuesque take on a pop culture icon, based on exclusive original art by one of Canada's biggest names in the comic book industry. Sculpted by one of our world-class engravers, the gold-plated sculpture of Superman is the epitome of strength and resolve as he emerges from the reverse, where the engraved Kryptonian glyphs (“Superman”) speak to his identity as The Last Son of Krypton.

A must-have world's first sculpture coin for any Superman fan! Order today!

Special features:

  • INTRODUCING THE WORLD'S FIRST SUPERMAN SCULPTURE COIN! For the first time ever, Superman is re-imagined in sculptural form! The sculpture of The Last Son of Krypton is an incredible feat that “shatters” the boundary between 2D and 3D art on the reverse.
  • WE'VE RE-TEAMED WITH A FAN FAVOURITE! Comic book art meets numismatic art on the reverse! Sculpted by Royal Canadian Mint engraver Mathew Porter, the statuette on the reverse is based on an exclusive original art concept by one of Canada's biggest names in the comic book industry: artist Jason Fabok.
  • GOLD PLATING! Magnificent gold plating adds a rich gleam to the silver sculpture of Superman, whose show of strength on the reverse may have been fuelled by Earth's yellow sun.
  • RETURN OF THE GLYPHS! While the sculpture steals the spotlight on the reverse, the coin's large-sized (65 mm) surface bears an outstanding number of engraved design elements, including the return of Kryptonian glyphs (“Superman”) that speak to the character's origins.
  • INCLUDES AN EXCLUSIVE COLLECTOR CARD! Your coin comes with a collector card that traces its journey from concept to coin, including Jason Fabok's original art!
  • ENCAPSULATED! Your coin is safely enclosed in a dome-like capsule to help protect this uniquely shaped showpiece, which will add prestige to your collection.
  • SERIALIZED CERTIFICATE! Your coin includes a serialized certificate!
  • LOW MINTAGE! Limited to 1,000 coins worldwide.
  • GST/HST EXEMPT! Your coin is GST/HST exempt.

Design:

Designed by Canadian comic book artist Jason Fabok, your coin offers a statuesque take on The Last Son of Krypton. The silver sculpture of Superman appears to break out of the coin's surface, where the boundary between 2D and 3D art has been “shattered” in a show of strength and resolve. As though exposed to the energy-giving rays of Earth's yellow sun, Superman basks in the rich gleam of gold plating that highlights the sculpted work of Royal Canadian Mint engraver Mathew Porter. Superman's gaze looks up towards the sky as he ascends with arms held out to the side, providing an unfettered view of the iconic ‘S' emblazoned across his chest. The coin's flat surface serves as a base, where the framed rim includes the engraved Kryptonian glyphs for “Superman” alongside the word “CANADA”, the year “2018” and the face value, “100 DOLLARS”. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt and the word “CANADA”.

Did you know…

  • In the beginning, Superman could withstand bullets… but not a bomb! This didn't last long: during the post-war Atomic Era, Superman's powers were expanded to include invulnerability to nuclear explosions.
  • At first, Superman was famously “able to leap tall buildings in a single bound.” By the early 1940s, he had begun to fly, too!
  • While Action Comics #1 explained Superman's alien origin, his vulnerability to Kryptonite was only introduced a decade later.

Packaging:

Your coin is safely enclosed in a dome-like capsule to help protect this uniquely shaped showpiece, which will add prestige to your collection.

Bait & Switch

I returned all 3 that I ordered because I was baited by the photoshopped glistening appearance and when arrived it was switched to a pale non-glistening reality. Superman looks sickly pale; is there kryptonite within the coin that's making him weak and sick looking? To the Mint: Stop photoshopping your coins!

I echo other comments about how disappointing this coin turns out to be. It's hard to believe it's gold plated, looks like plastic or poorly coated with paint. Gold is supposed to be shining, by the way this is Superman raising to give hope....put a nice shine on the sculpture that's the point isn't it? For a thousand plus dollars a little attention to detail would have made all the difference, poor detailing raising out of the ground and the details of the face are poor for my liking, The good and skilled people at the RCM have done outstanding coins in the past, in my opinion this is not one of them especially at this price point, a wasted opportunity on a fantastic original idea for a coin. I'm returning it ASAP.

My son is a fan of Superman so there's only one kind of gift that I always give to him on his birthday and Christmas...Superman coins. This one is the best so far. Someone doesn't like the way it was done but for me is perfect... why ? if it's shiny Superman will look like a trophy to me...IMO

Glad I dropped by the RCM store, I cancelled my order!

I purchased this product using the monthly payment plan. Fortunately I dropped by the RCM store in Ottawa for a coin exchange and though these are flagged as sold out, there was one for sale there. I actually was glad to hold it and review in person only to see that the coin was not at all like the picture on the web site and it was just plain ugly. No lustre at all, the entire gold application was dull and the finish reminded me of golden plastic figurines included in a children's meal at McDonald's... seriously! The mint must be more honest and transparent with what they post on their website and must be more accurate in the representation of their products. Unfortunately, what you see is not always what you get. I immediately cancelled my order and I am extremely disappointed with the lack of business values within the Royal Canadian Mint.

Not impressed with this coin at all.

I bought 2 hoping to give 1 as a gift... After receiving them and seeing their look, I changed my mind on the purchase. Sent them both back. I'll let someone else have the opportunity to own 1 or 2.

I really love the Sculpture coins like the wolf, bighorn sheep, etc. However finally receiving the superman coin I am disappointed to see that the picture shown online is far from the end result. Superman and the base share the same unpolished color which looks almost like plastic. The part where Superman attaches to the base is so roughly done I have seen better work on action figures from China.... Next time I will have to see it in person before buying :(
