2013 Canada $20 Superman & Metropolis Fine Silver Hologram
You would never guess by looking at him that the “Man of Steel” has celebrated his 75th birthday, but indeed he has. This coin was made in celebration of that milestone anniversary. It’s a special piece because it’s the first achromatic hologram coin struck by any mint. In addition, it’s the first piece produced by the Royal Canadian Mint to bear the image of Superman.
The three-dimensional image on this holographic coin gives movement to the scene of Superman flying over the city of Metropolis, making the picture come to life! The Daily Planet, the newspaper where Clark Kent worked, can be seen in the city below. For those super-fans out there, the words “75 Years of Superman” are written in the Kryptonian language, a reference to Superman’s home planet of Krypton. This is a beautiful collector’s item with details that make it truly special.
2016 Canada $10 Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice – Batman
It was shocking to see Batman and Superman battling each other in the movie “Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice.” This movie was the first time fans saw Batman and Superman together in a live-action movie. Their on-screen relationship certainly had a rocky start.
This unique coin was designed to reflect the feeling that everything we knew about these superheroes had been shattered by this film. The “shattered glass” effect on this coin was created with contrasting frost finishes making up the background behind an imposing image of Batman leaping through the air.
2016 Canada $10 Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice – Wonder Woman
“Dawn of Justice” was also the first time we met the character of Wonder Woman on screen, making this another special coin in the Justice League collection. The image of a muscular, battle-ready Wonder Woman lunging is in the foreground, with the “shattered glass” effect in the background.
Her bracers and Lasso of Truth can be seen in the image, and she’s gripping her sword at her side. Diana Prince may be a quiet antiquities dealer, but as Wonder Woman she never backs down from a fight. This coin commemorates her first on-screen battles fighting alongside Batman and Superman.
With so many fantastic characters on these coins, it’s impossible to pick a favourite! Whether it’s a Wonder Woman or Batman vs Superman coin you’re after or you want another hero, check out the superheroes collections at Colonial Acres Coins to find the perfect present. Coin collecting is a hobby that inspires joy, brings people together and provides opportunities for learning. It can all begin with the gift of superhero coins.
