Only one person gets to wear an official “S” on his chest, a man sent to a Kansas farm from the planet Krypton as a baby to save him from his planet’s imminent destruction. He grew up to be the greatest superhero of all time, disguised as a mild-mannered reporter until he was called on to save the world—Superman!
But now you can have as many Superman mementos as you want in your collection. In mid-2016, the Royal Canadian Mint made a limited edition of one-ounce .9999 pure silver Superman Shield bullion coins as part of its DC Comics superhero coin series.
Canadian Silver Superman Shield Bullion Coins
This series followed the RCM’s hugely popular Star Trek series from earlier in the year and features several multi-color embossed images of scenes from DC’s heroes and heroines. But the Superman Shield coin stands out uniquely as a gleaming, pure silver beauty.
Superman Silver Maple Leaf Coin Design
The Superman Shield silver coin features Susan Blunt’s right-facing portrait of Queen Elizabeth II on its face, as do all current Canadian legal tender coins. It’s surrounded by inscriptions of Elizabeth II, DG Regina, 5 Dollars (its face value), and the year 2016. On the reverse, Superman’s iconic “S” shield is centered over a multitude of finely engraved lines that radiate from behind it. It’s inscribed with Canada, 9999, Fine Silver, 1 Oz, and Argent Pur (French for Pure Silver). It also has the DC Comics trademarks and a security mark in the shape of a maple leaf with the number 16 micro-engraved on it.
