To celebrate the 75th anniversary of the iconic comic hero Superman, the Royal Canadian Mint team up with legendary publishers DC Comics to produce a stunning set of silver coins presented in a themed box set. Struck in .9999 pure silver, 1 oz. 'Man of Steel' coin is part of a stunning box set that promises to bring a lot of pleasure and a great return on investment. However, with only a low mintage in circulation, you will need to act fast before stocks run out.
The Superman coins promise to be a classic collection, and with only 10,000 in circulation these coins are rare collector's items and will command a sizeable fee. Investor's lucky enough to get their hands on the 2013 Man of Steel 1 oz silver coin can be certain of a windfall when the time to comes to sell. The Royal Canadian Mint has an established history of producing silver coins to the highest precision and their products are highly respected all around the world. The Superman collection is no exception and with a 99.99 silver purity, the coin is fairly valuable in its own right. But there is something extra special about the Superman coins that collectors and fans of Superman memorabilia will pay top dollar for. That of course is the living memory of the classic superhero every child born after 1938 has grown up with. Superman began life as a comic before being dramatically brought to life on the silver screen. Seventy-five years after his creation he is still one of the best known fictional characters of all time. To add to the attraction of the colour design, the coins are presented in a beautifully crafted display box with the Man of Steel theme and embedded into a clear acrylic presentation case.
Silver coins produced by the Royal Canadian Mint are legal tender in Canada and can be traded practically anywhere in the world. The Man of Steel one ounce coins have a face value of $20 Canadian Dollars (CAD), but based on spot silver prices alone are worth much more in the current financial market. Once you add the numismatic value, the one ounce 'Man of Steel' silver coin represents an excellent investment.
The Royal Canadian Mint teamed up with copyright owners of the Superman character DC Comics and were given special compensation to become official licensees of the emblematic figure. Superman appear in full colour on the reverse of the coins, watching over his adopted city of Metropolis in full blue and white uniform, his red cape billowing in the wind. In the bottom right curve of the image, next to the superheroes outstretched foot is the sign of the Daily Planet, the fictional newspaper Clark Kent worked for. Also on the reverse side is the value of $20, together with the country of origin along the top rim and the year of production along the bottom rim. The other symbols that appear around the rim is original Kryptonian language taken from the comic which says “75 years of Superman."
The obverse side of the coin features the crownless portrait of Queen Elizabeth II created by Susanna Blunt in 2003. The words “Elizabeth II" and “D G Regina flank either side of her majesty's bust." The coins are struck in 99.99% pure silver and have a diameter measuring 38mm.
The Royal Canadian Mint has produced silver bullion coins since 1911 and established itself as a world leader in precious metal engineering with the production of the its ground breaking gold Maple Leaf in 1979. It is fitting that the RCM were chosen to commemorate a milestone occasion for Superman as Joseph-Shuster, the co-creator of the original comic character was born and raised in Toronto. The fictional city of Metropolis is based on Toronto and the Daily Planet was based on the Toronto Daily Star, the paper Shuster delivered papers for until his family moved to Cleveland Ohio when he was ten years old. However, the Man of Steel was the subtitle used for editions of the comic between 1993 and 2004 after Shuster had finished contributing the artwork due to bad health. He dies in 1996. The picture used for the 2013 Man Of Steel silver coin was featured on the cover of April 2004 edition.
The Royal Canadian Mint uses some of the most advanced security features in bullion production. Their priority to protect investors from receiving counterfeit coins is second to none and forgeries can easily be detected by experienced dealers like the experts at CoinInvest.
