Following last year’s sold-out Superman™ seven coin series, the Royal Canadian Mint has introduced four new collector coins featuring DC Comics’ iconic Superman comic book covers. The coins were unveiled today at FAN EXPO Canada™ by the Honourable Peter Van Loan, Leader of the Government in the House of Commons, and Mr. Patrick Hadsipantelis, Vice-President of Marketing and Communications at the Royal Canadian Mint.
“Canadians from coast to coast to coast recall Superman’s adventures in the comic books of their youth and still follow his adventures today,” said Minister Van Loan. “Our Government is proud that the Royal Canadian Mint has created this coin series to preserve his legacy and to promote the values that the Man of Steel embodies.”
“Superman’s legend continues with these expertly crafted coins produced in stunning colour by Mint employees,” said Mr. Hadsipantelis. “The use of different finishes and engraving techniques bring the world’s most famous Super Hero to life and exemplify the Mint’s internationally renowned craftsmanship.”
“We’re thrilled to partner with DC Entertainment to once again offer the Royal Canadian Mint another side of the Superman coin with this new collection inspired by fan-favorite DC Comics’ comic book covers from the rich world of the Superman mythos,” said Karen McTier, Executive Vice President, Domestic Licensing and Worldwide Marketing, Warner Bros. Consumer Products.
