Superman’s Canadian Connection
If you happen to be a loyal fan of comic book characters, then you should know about some of the ties of Superman to Canada. This famous character was actually co-created by Joe Shuster, a Toronto-born artist. Many other Canadian artists have contributed to comic books over the years which helped the Royal Canadian Mint to come up with this coin idea. Celebrating both the creator and the virtues this character stands for, the coin really shines in all its beauty and grace. Another fun fact about Superman and Canada is that Metropolis was actually modelled off of Toronto. The Daily Planet is inspired by the Toronto Star, the Canadian broadsheet daily newspaper. You can certainly find many more ties that connect this childhood hero of millions to numerous Canadian artists.
All Design Details
If you take a closer look at this outstanding coin, you’ll notice that a lot of attention was paid to detail. It is made out of silver and gold, a top-notch combination that makes both the figure and the coin stand out in incredible fashion. Superman looks like he is breaking out of the coin surrounded by golden pieces that highlight his figure. Mathew Porter, the Royal Canadian Mint engraver, was responsible for the statuesque look of the hero with his confident and resolved stance. The famous ‘S’ can be seen on his chest and his hands are positioned close to the body and held out. The silver rim of the coin features the word Superman in Kryptonian glyphs as well as the word “CANADA” and “2018”. The face value “100 dollars” is also included on the rim of the reverse. The obverse shows the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II.
