The DC Comics brand has supplied a vast number of iconic characters that have shaped the superhero archetype and the journeys of both those heroes and their enemies into the wider landscape of pop culture and entertainment. Catwoman was a creation from the first issue of Batman’s original solo comic, where she appeared as “The Cat.” She has since been a consistent antagonist and anti-heroine in the Caped Crusader’s rogue’s gallery, a complicated character and sometimes love interest who has played a large role in shaping Batman’s legacy. The New Zealand Mint celebrates her with the 2022 Niue Chibi Catwoman Shaped 1 oz Silver Coin, now available to fans, collectors, and silver enthusiasts from Provident Metals.
The 2022 Niue Chibi Catwoman Shaped Silver Coin comes in a themed display case, accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity that identifies its unique number in the mintage, and with the additional protection of a custom-designed acrylic case. Provident Metals tracks and fully insures each and every shipment against the most remote chance of loss or damage.
The coin’s obverse side features a legal tender effigy of the late Queen Elizabeth II as designed by Ian Rank-Broadley, accompanied by the inscriptions “Elizabeth II,” “Niue,” “2022,” and “2 Dollars.” It confirms the coin’s silver content as “1 oz 999 Fine Silver” and shows the copyright and trademark of DC Comics.
The coin’s reverse side is a shaped and colorized sculpture of Catwoman, with the “big head” caricature style accentuating the red-tinted goggles that come with her modern, skin-tight black costume.
Catwoman was a creation of Bob Kane and Bill Finger, and she made her first appearance in Batman #1as “the Cat.” Since then, she has been one of the most consistent presences in Batman’s rogues’ gallery: not quite a villain, but an anti-hero whose values were simply lined up differently. She also proved to be a periodic love interest whose dynamic generated a frequently-fascinating tension with the square-jawed vigilante, and she has often been one of the most fascinating characters in the Gotham milieu of the Caped Crusader. The character’s often-playful nature makes her a perfect subject for the New Zealand Mint’s DC Chibi series.
