Description
The Canadian Mint has designed a celebration of the iconic art that has graced the covers of Superman DC comic books throughout all eras of Superman’s history, from 1938 to the present. A new, more modern version of Superman is introduced in the 2011 release of Action Comics #1, as part of DC Comics’ launch of The New 52 universe, as stunningly depicted on the coin’s reverse.
The reverse image recreates the 2011 cover of Action Comics #1, and features Superman as he runs from the authorities through the streets of Metropolis. The original artwork introduced a more modern take on a young Superman; wearing denim jeans and boots, Superman still maintains elements from his traditional costume with a blue shirt, red cape and the iconic ‘S’ shield emblazoned across his chest. Vibrant color enhances the engraved portrait of Superman, even adding a red glow to the streaks caused by bullets that do little to slow him down. A series of concentric circles frame the reverse, adding depth to the overall design and creating the illusion that Superman is racing out from the coin at breakneck speed towards the viewer.
Meticulous engraving replicates the finer details of the original artwork—including the city streets and the pursuing authorities in the background—while brilliant color infuses the reverse with energy and helps recreate the look and feel of the original artwork. Advanced engraving techniques are used to frame the image within a series of concentric circles to create added depth and motion to the design, creating the impression that Superman is racing straight towards the viewer!
