Two-Face was first introduced in the pages of Batman’s comics as a once pure-hearted prosecutor who fell victim to misfortune, disfigured by a well-timed acid attack by a Mob stooge. He stewed on his disfigurement and eventually went mad, becoming an avatar of the random nature of fate who decided the fates of his victims with the toss of a coin, and in this incarnation, he became one of the most persistent foes of the Caped Crusader. Visually vivid in his design, he makes a perfect subject for a coin of this type.
This coin’s obverse side features an official effigy of Queen Elizabeth II: it is, despite its unusual colors and shape, legal tender of the island nation of Niue. The effigy is surrounded by inscriptions of the royal name, the country of issue, and the coin’s face value, along with verification of the coin’s silver content and the copyright and trademark of DC.
The Janus-like visage of Two-Face forms a colorized and sculpted portrait that comprises the coin’s reverse side. It combines light relief work, shape, and color for maximum impact, making the most of his striking and iconic look.
