The first example of what would become a vast collection of superhero characters would also prove to be the most popular and enduring representative of this colorful archetype. Superman, also known as the Man of Steel, is commemorated by the New Zealand Mint’s 2022 Niue Classic Superhero Superman 1/4 oz Gold Coin, part of the DC Comics collection and now available from Provident Metals.
This 2022 Niue Classic Superhero Superman Gold Coin features a powerful portrait of the Man of Steel in lustrous fine gold, and Provident Metals ships it to you in a themed collector’s box lined with black velvet, ready to be displayed in your own collection. Your shipment is fully insured against damage or loss, but we recommend ordering early to get in on this exclusive limited mintage of just a few hundred coins, sure to be prized by collectors and fans alike.
The coin’s reverse side features a high-relief portrait of Superman in a powerful heroic pose standing alongside his iconic “S”-shaped shield logo. It also carries the trademark and copyright for DC Comics and the inscription “1/4 oz 9999 Fine Gold SUPERMAN.”
A profile effigy of Queen Elizabeth II adorns the coin’s obverse side, as seen in British Commonwealth circulation coinage around the globe and first designed by Ian Rank-Broadley. This portrait is joined by the inscriptions “Elizabeth II,” “Niue,” “25 Dollars” and “2022.”
Of all the characters celebrated by the New Zealand Mint’s DC Comics collectibles, none is better known than the high-flying Superman. The Man of Steel, created in 1938, first brought together the elements that make up the modern superhero and ever since has been revered by a global fandom that has fueled his dominant presence in media of all types. His innate goodness, devotion to justice, and his mystique as a kind of symbolic “immigrant” from an alien planet have all contributed to the character’s extraordinary longevity.
