2014 14-Karat Gold Coin – Iconic Superman™ Comic Book Covers: The Adventures of Superman #596 from 2001
A finely-detailed recreation of the cover of The Adventures of Superman #596, showcasing the iconic S-shield emblem that is synonymous with Superman.
A celebration of the iconic art that has graced the covers of Superman comic books throughout all eras of Superman’s tenure, from 1938 to the present.
Different finishes and expert engraving bring the dynamic movement of the reverse image to life, creating the impression that the S-shield is projecting from the coin.
Advanced engraving techniques are used to frame the image within a series of concentric circles to create added depth and motion to the design.
Limited mintage for this 14-karat gold coin is set to only 2,000.
The reverse image taken from the cover of The Adventures of Superman #596 features perhaps one of the most iconic and enduring images associated with Superman: that of the famous S-shield. A partially obstructed view of Clark Kent allows the focus to remain on his chest as he rips back his shirt to reveal the emblematic S-shield. Colour is used to add depth to the image. The overlapping of Clark Kent’s tie and buttons past the inner image, which is created by a series of concentric circles, further adds to the design’s dynamic movement and helps create the illusion that the emblem is emerging from the coin.
