Mint issues silver Superman coin

The Royal Canadian Mint has achieved another world-first with the release of its latest one-ounce, 99.99 per cent pure silver bullion coin, this celebrating a pop culture icon who has inspired countless characters in the DC Comics pantheon.


A total of 500 coins have been boxed in the red and blue packaging shown above.

The new Superman coin is now shipping to the Mint’s network of official bullion distributors. Limited to a volume of one million pieces, this 2016-dated coin features design and security elements that continue to make the Mint’s silver bullion coins among the world’s most popular. Its reverse is emblazoned with a uniquely frosted engraving of Superman’s signature “S-Shield,” which stands out from a background of precisely engraved radial lines. The addition of a micro-engraved security mark consisting of a maple leaf containing the numeral “16” also makes this unique bullion coin a highly secure collectible.


This latest Superman coin features the signature ‘S-Shield’ on its reverse.

To complete the Superman experience, quantities of 500 coins have been boxed in red and blue packaging with a cover label featuring a full-colour illustration of Superman, and each 25-coin tube also features a custom tamper-proof seal.

In keeping with a distribution model common to the world’s major issuers of bullion coins, the Mint does not sell precious metal investment products directly to the public. Interested buyers are encouraged to contact a reputable bullion dealer to order this new coin.
