2013 Canada 50-cent Superman: Then and Now Lenticular Coin & Stamp Set

As an ode to Superman's 75 years in publication, Superman is represented in both his 'Golden Age' appearance, as seen on the cover of Superman #1, and a modern homage to that classic cover. As an Official Licensee of DC Comics, the Royal Canadian Mint has created this unique coin and commemorative packaging that also features a collectible stamp by Canada Post.

This 50-cent cupronickel coin has a diameter of 35 millimetres, and features a laser-created lenticular reverse image. The reverse image, created by DC Comics/Warner Brothers, features an ode to Superman's 75 years in publication. The reverse is engraved with the word 'CANADA,' the date '2013,' and the face value of '50 CENTS,' as well as 'SUPERMAN' in the fictitious Kryptonian language from Superman's home planet in English and French. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
