Retro Art Meets Modern Techniques

The Royal Canadian Mint is going back to the Bronze Age of Comics to present DC Comic?s greatest Super Heroes with the 2017 3 oz Silver Reverse Gold-Plated Superman $50 Proof coin. Traditional engraving brings Superman to life as he seemingly bursts through the laser-engraved comic book panels of the coin?s surface. Except for the Superman at the center, which shines in pure silver, the golden gleam from the reverse gold-plating subtly hints at the aged look of a vintage comic, but with much more vibrancy and luminosity that highlights all the coin?s details. This combination of engraving, plating and finishing creates a sense of motion and adds texture as if Superman is emerging from the coin?s flat surface and racing straight towards the viewer.

Coin Design
Through a layered approach, this coin?s design re-visits the artistry of retro DC Comics. In the background, laser engraving re-creates all the details, shadows, nuances and complexities that are characteristic to Bronze Age comics. Each of the re-created panels hint at the origin stories of Superman, Batman, or Wonder Woman, and are resplendent in reverse gold plating that adds a golden gleam throughout the reverse ? save for the center image of Superman. Engraved in outstanding detail, Superman shines bright in silver as the Super Hero bursts through the page, revealing a laser halftone pattern behind it. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Each coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded standard case with a graphic beauty box. Includes serialized Certificate of Authenticity
