Marvel Comics first published Deadpool in The New Mutants #98 issued in February 1991. Writer Fabian Nicieza and artist Rob Liefeld brought the character to life on the pages of the comic. He was initially created as a supervillain in his first appearance, and in later issues of X-Force, but with time he evolved into what many consider an anti-hero.
Deadpool is known by the nickname “Merc with a Mouth.” Deadpool’s character background identifies him as a disfigured mercenary, or gun for hire. In his interactions in comics and feature films, he has a tendency to run his mouth nonstop, talking and joking with other characters on a regular basis and even breaking the fourth-wall in feature films.
On the reverse of the 2018 1 oz Silver Tuvalu Deadpool Marvel Series Coin is a depiction of Deadpool. He is featured standing with his arms crossed and his signature swords crossed behind his back. Ryan Reynolds has most recently portrayed Deadpool in feature films, appearing in the X-Men series of films, as well as X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Deadpool, and Deadpool 2.
The obverse face of 2018 Silver Tuvalu Deadpool Marvel Series Coins offers an image of Queen Elizabeth II. This right-profile depiction comes from Ian Rank-Broadley, who created the design in 1998 for use on Royal Mint of England coins. Though no longer used on British or Australian coins, it is still popular on currency in Commonwealth nations like Tuvalu.
These 2018 1 oz Silver Tuvalu Deadpool Marvel Series Coins are specially packaged inside of blister pack cards. The card offers the same reverse coin design on its surface with full-color artwork. The opposite side of the card includes the coin’s weight, purity, metal content, and mintage information. Each coin is in Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
