Making his first regular comic book appearance in 1938, Superman was built on the inspiration of pulp fiction and swashbuckling heroes from prior decades but emerged as something entirely new. The prototypical superhero, he pioneered everything from the classic colorful cape-and-tights look to major conventions of the archetype like superhuman powers, a secret identity, and a selfless commitment to justice. The character was also a cultural pioneer, with a past as the lost son of the alien world of Krypton that asserted the positive value of immigrants to American culture.
The coin’s reverse side features this perenially popular hero in a pair of high-relief sculpted portraits in a frosted finish, set against a mirrored background that also features his iconic S-shaped shield logo. It also includes the trademark and copyright for DC comics along with the inscription “1 oz 999 Fine Silver SUPERMAN.”
On the coin’s obverse is a profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, along with the inscriptions “Elizabeth II,” “Niue,” “Two Dollars” and “2022.”
