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!

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".

As Superman's cousin from the Planet Krypton, the teenage Kara Zor-El arrived on Earth many years after Kal-El. While Superman decided her future, Kara was secretly whisked away to Wonder Womanl™'s home island of Themyscira for her own protection; unfortunately, Supergirl was abducted by the dreaded villain Darkseid and pitted against Superman in a battle for her soul. 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.
