2017 Canada $50 DC Comics Originals - The Brave & the Bold Silver Reverse Gold Plated Silver (TAX Exempt)

Comics grow up - The Coming of Age DC Comics flourishes during the Bronze Age.

This reverse gold-plated, 3 oz. fine silver coin channels the spirit of Bronze Age comics, with a special focus on Superman, Baan and Wonder Woman.

- We're going back to the Bronze Age of Comics to present DC Comics' greatest Super Heroes!
- Retro art meets modern techniques on the reverse: traditional engraving brings "Bronze Age" Superman to life as he bursts through the laser-engraved comic book panels…and seemingly off the coin's surface!
- Reverse gold plating adds a soft gleam to the reverse - except for Superman at the centre, which shines in fine silver. The golden gleam subtly hints at the aged look of a vintage comic, but with much more vibrancy and a rich luminosity that highlights all the details!
- HOME-GROWN TALENT! Canadian creators Jason Fabok, Darwyn Cooke and Tom Grummett have all helped to shape Superman's history as artists/writers!
- Seeing is believing: The combination of engraving, plating and finishes creates a sense of motion and adds texture: it looks and feels like Superman is emerging from the coin's flat surface and racing straight toward the viewer!
- Truly made by fans FOR the fans: It's a heartfelt salute to the timeless nature of these timeless characters, with all the respect and dedication that only the Royal Canadian Mint can provide.
