In 1986, the Batman that fans had loved since 1939 was re-envisioned by DC Comics. Author Frank Miller created the Dark Knight. The four-comic mini-series quickly became a favorite to many.
The Dark Knight was very different than the past version of Batman. This Batman was darker and dimmer than in the past. Fortunately, this darker version of the popular superhero was a hit. The Dark Knight led to the creation of many other conflicted superheroes, as well. In 2016, the Dark Knight celebrates its 30th Anniversary, and Fiji, along with Sunshine Minting, is celebrating with a new coin.
On the obverse of each 2016 2 oz Fiji 30th Anniversary Dark Knight Returns Silver Coin, you will see the colorized rendition of Miller’s Dark Knight. The red backdrop and hints of black will remind you of a comic book. The silver section of the coin features a matte finish with the words “The Dark Knight” engraved into the metal.
The reverse of each coin bears the image of the Fijian Coat of Arms. The coat of arms showcases a number of different images that point to the seafaring traditions of the small island, including a sailing canoe and creatures from the sea.
Each coin ships in a Dark Knight-themed box with a Certificate of Authenticity. You will also receive colorized artwork that goes with the coin.
All of these coins are produced by Sunshine Mint. This private refinery is located in Coeur d’Alene in Idaho. The mint also has locations in Nevada and Shanghai, China.
