Among the original roster of superheroes who kickstarted the DC brand in the Golden Age of comic books, one of the most important was the Flash, who has remained one of the most famous faces in the superhero genre ever since. Known as the Scarlet Speedster and the Fastest Man Alive, the character has been reinvented multiple times. Perhaps his most famous iteration was the Barry Allen Flash, who debuted in 1956 and is now commemorated by the New Zealand Mint’s 2022 1 oz Gold Proof Niue Classic Superhero Flash Coin.

The Flash is known for the superhuman speeds at which he can move, fight, and think. Barry Allen was the secret identity of his Silver Age incarnation which first appeared in the mid-Fifties, reviving the superhero’s legacy after a previous downturn in the fortunes of the genre and carrying the speedster forward into new decades of adventure. He remains arguably the best-known version of the Flash to this day.
The reverse side of this coin features Barry Allen’s Flash in a powerful pose alongside his iconic lightning-bolt logo. The rim carries inscriptions that confirm the coin’s weight and gold content along with DC’s copyright and trademark.
Queen Elizabeth II appears in profile on the coin’s obverse side in a design familiar from British Commonwealth coinage around the world, identifying the coin as legal tender. It’s joined by the inscriptions “ELIZABETH II,” “NIUE,” “250 DOLLARS” and “2022.”
