Released in 2011, the "supersized" Superman Action Comics #1 presented a new, updated take on Superman as part of the relaunch of DC Comics titles; known as The New 52, the titles within each series offer a more modern take on its slate of characters through reimagined storylines, backstories and elements of their costumes.

Did you know…
•    In the New 52 universe, Superman is at the beginning of his crime-fighting career: he's young, he can't fly yet, he has a make-shift costume and he's more of a vigilante.
•    This issue featured several variant covers.
•    Blink and you might miss it! The issue includes a few subtleties including a cameo appearance by the character Pandora (who appeared in every #1 issue of The New 52 series) and Lois Lane's zip-up shirt that reads "Keystone City"—the home of another superhero: The Flash!

The perfect coin to start your child's or grandchild's love of coin collecting! Don't be disappointed, order yours today!

•    A new, more modern version of Superman is introduced in the 2011 release of Action Comics #1, as part of DC Comics' launch of The New 52 universe, as stunningly depicted on the coin's reverse.
•    Meticulous engraving replicates the finer details of the original artwork—including the city streets and the pursuing authorities in the background—while brilliant colour infuses the reverse with energy and helps recreate the look and feel of the original artwork.
•    Advanced engraving techniques are used to frame the image within a series of concentric circles to create added depth and motion to the design, creating the impression that Superman is racing straight towards the viewer!
•    Your coin is GST/HST exempt.

About the Design:
The reverse image recreates the 2011 cover of Action Comics #1, and features Superman as he runs from the authorities through the streets of Metropolis. The original artwork introduced a more modern take on a young Superman; wearing denim jeans and boots, Superman still maintains elements from his traditional costume with a blue shirt, red cape and the iconic 'S' shield emblazoned across his chest. Vibrant colour enhances the engraved portrait of Superman, even adding a red glow to the streaks caused by bullets that do little to slow him down. A series of concentric circles frame the reverse, adding depth to the overall design and creating the illusion that Superman is racing out from the coin at breakneck speed towards the viewer.

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