The upcoming feature film Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice is due in theaters this summer, but for those who cannot wait there is a precious metal option to further enhance interest and excitement. The Royal Canadian Mint is releasing a series of Batman v. Superman-themed coins ahead of the feature film, and the 2016 ¼ oz Silver Canadian Batman v. Superman Dawn of Justice coin is currently available online at Silver.com.

- Consists of 7.96 grams, or one-quarter troy ounce, of .9999 fine silver.

Dawn of Justice chronicles the interaction between Batman and Superman. The heroes of Gotham City and Metropolis, respectively, collide when Batman sees Superman wielding too much power. The clash between the two pits mankind against itself in siding with a hero, and clouds their vision from a new threat emerging.
These particular coins are the only Dawn of Justice-themed silver coins from the Royal Canadian Mint that lack colorization in the design. Nonetheless, the richly detailed design of these coins are among the finest you’ll find on the market today.
On the reverse face of the coin you can see Superman raising his fist to strike Batman, who is featured wearing the bulkier suit of the new Dawn of Justice film. Engravings include the year of issue, metal content, purity, and face value of the coin.
The obverse bears Queen Elizabeth II’s right-profile portrait. Created in 2003 by Susanna Blunt, this depiction of the Queen is the most modern available from the Royal Canadian Mint and includes engravings of Her Majesty’s name, the nation of issue, and the phrase “D.G. Regina.”
Founded in 1908 to cope with precious metal extraction from the Yukon Territories, the Royal Canadian Mint boasted only an Ottawa location until the 1980s. At this point in time the Winnipeg facility was added to cope with increasing demands.
