• 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.
• 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.
• While the sculpture steals the spotlight on the reverse, the coin’s large surface bears an outstanding number of engraved design elements, including the return of Kryptonian glyphs ("SUPERMAN") that speak to the character's origins.
• Each one comes with an exclusive collector card that traces its journey from concept to coin, including Jason Fabok’s original art.
• Each coin is safely encapsulated in a dome-like capsule to help protect this uniquely shaped showpiece, which will add prestige to your collection.
Wood circular base with black beauty box.
