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.
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.
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.
