The New Zealand Mint’s DC Classic Coin collection is famous for bringing together some of the most iconic comic book characters in history in the form of precious gold and silver collectibles. One of the most famous heroes joining the collection in a new and exclusive limited mintage is the Flash, the Fastest Man Alive, a classic character whose exploits go all the way back to his first appearance in 1940. Now he’s featured on the 2022 Proof Niue Classic Superhero Flash 1/4 oz Gold Coin, available from Provident Metals.
Showcasing elegant engraving in frosted high-relief against a mirror-like background, the 2022 Proof Niue Classic Superhero Flash Gold Coin is a precious collectible sure to be appreciated by dedicated fans of the character as well as by collectors and investors of every stripe. Provident Metals ships this coin fully insured in a high-quality coin case contained inside a Flash-themed box, and we recommend ordering early due to very limited supply.
The coin’s obverse side carries a profile effigy of Queen Elizabeth II to confirm it as legal tender of Niue, surrounded by the inscriptions “ELIZABETH II,” “NIUE,” “25 DOLLARS” and “2022.”
The Flash sports a modern, post-“Silver Age” look as he poses heroically on the coin’s reverse side along with his lightning-bolt sigil, along with inscriptions at the coin’s rim to verify the purity and weight of the gold, and the copyright and trademark of DC.
The Flash has been through many incarnations since he was first created by cartoonist Harry Lampert in 1940. His first reinvention came with a new secret identity as Barry Allen, a forensic scientist who gained superhuman speed after he was struck by lightning. Helping the superhero genre to storm back from its first historic sales slump in 1956, it was the Barry Allen Flash of the so-called “Silver Age” who defined the character’s modern look and logo and who became the best-known and most frequently-revisited version of the hero. Fittingly, that’s the version that was chosen to decorate this extraordinary collectible.
