75th Anniversary of Superman™ Commemorative Coins

75th Anniversary of Superman™ Commemorative CoinsNow available from the Royal Canadian Mint are seven different strikes issued as part of the 75th Anniversary of Superman™ Commemorative Coin Program. These seven Superman Commemorative Coins include six precious metal options and one cupro-nickel coin.

The precious metal coins include one composed of 14-karat gold (58.33% gold, 41.67% silver) and five struck from 99.99% pure silver. Each of the precious metal coins are featured in extremely limited mintages.

“Seventy-five years after  Superman’s introduction to the world, Mint employees are proud to honour Superman’s legacy by producing a special series of  gold, silver and cupro-nickel collector coins for Canadians and collectors alike to treasure for years to come,” said Ian Bennett, President and CEO of the Royal Canadian Mint. “The Man of Steel inspired legions of popular comic book heroes, but only Superman has  been immortalized on Canadian coins, which feature bold innovations and superb craftsmanship.”

Superman was created by Canadian artist Joe Shuster and writer Jerry Siegel. Their super hero debuted in comic books in June of 1938 with Superman now being one of the most recognizable fictional characters in the world.

Celebrating the 75 years since his introduction, Superman's likeness appears on the reverse of each of the commemorative coins. On all but one of the silver coins, that reverse image of Superman is enhanced with color.
