New Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice coins nearly sold out

The Royal Canadian Mint’s new four-coin Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice subscription is more than 80 per cent sold following its release earlier this March.

Altogether, there are nine 2016-dated Batman v Superman coins – a four-coin subscription plus five additional coins to round out the series – and unlike the film, which was panned by critics after its release on March 25, the Mint’s offering is getting a positive response.

“Super excited about these coins,” said Jamie Desrochers, Mint product manager, in a Mint Talk video hosted by Eric Riley. “Been working on them in secret for over a year.”

Each of the coins in the four-coin subscription is made of 99.99 per cent pure silver and has a weight of 15.87 grams; a 34-mm diameter; and a face value of $10. They’re each priced at $49.95.

There are an additional five coins in the Mint's Batman v Superman series.

Batman and Superman may seem wildly different from each other – one possesses superpowers and the other relies on stealth and agility – yet both share a common purpose in their fight for justice. The first coin in the subscription combines both superhero’s logos on the reverse side to create a single logo that embodies the similarities and differences between these iconic characters. What’s more, the coin features a frosted finish that produces a “stunning shattered glass effect” as well as each superhero’s name engraved in the Kryptonian syllabic writing system.

The second coin, featuring Superman, will ship in April, and the third coin, featuring Batman, follows in May. The subscription’s fourth and final coin, featuring Wonder Woman, ships in June.
