The world got its first taste of Superman in Action Comics # 1, which is generally considered the most valuable comic book of all time. Now you can experience the iconic cover art in a whole new way with the 2022 COMIX Action Showcase #1 1 oz Silver Coin. These colorized silver specimens include a beautiful presentation case as well as a Certificate of Authenticity from the mint.
On the obverse face of 2022 Niue COMIX Action Showcase #1 1 oz Coins there is a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. This exquisite effigy is credited to Ian Rank-Broadley, who produced it for the Royal Mint in 1998. There are also inscriptions on the obverse field reading ELIZABETH II, NIUE, 2 DOLLARS, 2022.
The reverse side of 2022 Niue COMIX Action Showcase #1 1 oz silver Coins contains a replication of the 1938 Action Comics #1 cover. In this image, the world got its very first glimpse of Superman as he is depicted in full costume hoisting a green car above his head. Other details include an explosion in the background and citizens fleeing the scene for safety.
Superman creators Joe Shuster and Jerry Siegel had been sitting on their new superhero for years trying to find a publication for it. Initially, Superman was a villain who used telepathic powers against humanity. Later, his creators decided he might be more appealing as a hero, so they refashioned Superman and submitted his first story to Action Comics. Initially, the publishers were skeptical of Superman and found the comic weak. However, when the sky-high sales of the first issue were attributed to the Man of Steel, he became a staple in the iconic publication.
