This 2022 Silver Niue Classic Superhero Superman Coin comes encased in black velvet lining in a compact, themed collector’s box. It features a detailed montage of Superman imagery as a backdrop to a pair of high-relief portraits of the superhero, and ships fully insured against loss or damage en route.

Although built on ideas provided by the pulp and swashbuckling heroes of earlier decades, Superman was something new when he made his first comic book appearance in 1938. The character pioneered the fundamental elements of what would become an enduring superhero mythos: superhuman power, a secret identity, a colorful costume, and a commitment to justice. He also implicitly challenged a then-common assumption of Anglo-Saxon superiority by being, effectively, an “immigrant” from the distant planet Krypton.
The coin’s reverse side features this classic character in a montage of famous moments set as a backdrop to a pair of high-relief sculpted portraits, accompanied by the family S-shaped shield logo. It also includes the trademark and copyright for DC comics along with the inscription “3 oz 999 Fine Silver SUPERMAN.”
On the obverse is a legal tender profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, along with the inscriptions “Elizabeth II,” “Niue,” “Ten Dollars” and “2022.”
