Superman first appeared in the comic book format in 1938, and was the prototype of the idea of the superhero, originating a signature combination of colorful costumes, secret identities, supernatural power, and a firm commitment to justice. He was also the point of origin of the superhero as a vehicle for social commentary, acting essentially as an emissary for the importance of immigrants to the American identity in his substance as an alien from the planet Krypton. The Man of Steel has remained the most popular and widely-recognized superhero character ever since.
The coin’s reverse features the Man of Steel in a powerfully heroic portrait along with his iconic “S”-shaped shield sigil. It’s accompanied by the trademark and copyright for DC comics along with the inscription “1 oz 9999 Fine Gold SUPERMAN.”
On the coin’s obverse is a profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II as seen on legal tender in British Commonwealth countries, along with the inscriptions “Elizabeth II,” “Niue,” “250 Dollars” and “2022.”
