The New Zealand Mint’s DC Classic Coin collection includes a wide range of pure silver collectibles prized by collectors and fans and valued by investors. A new addition to the collection is the 2022 Proof Niue Classic Superhero Flash 3 oz Silver Coin now on offer from Provident Metals. It commemorates one of the founding heroes of DC Comics’ Golden Age, the Flash, featured here primarily in his perennially-popular incarnation as Barry Allen.
The 2022 Proof Niue Classic Superhero Flash Silver Coin features mirror-like backgrounds and frosted, high-relief artwork of a proof-quality silver collectible. Provident Metals fully insures your shipment against any possibility of loss or damage, and it comes in a secure acrylic capsule nestled in the velvet lining of a themed display box. Each item includes a Certificate of Authenticity that identifies its unique number in the limited mintage, and we recommend early ordering due to the limited supply.
A profile effigy of Queen Elizabeth II on the coin’s obverse side confirmed it as legal tender of the island nation of Niue. It’s surrounded by the inscriptions “ELIZABETH II,” “NIUE,” “TEN DOLLARS” and “2022.”
The coin’s reverse side features Flash — the Barry Allen version of the character — in action and standing in heroic poses alongside his distinctive lightning bolt sigil, with a comic panel montage forming a backdrop behind him. Inscriptions at the coin’s rim verify the purity and weight of its silver and show DC’s copyright and trademark.
The Flash was a classic Golden Age superhero character who debuted in 1939, one of the original characters to pioneer the DC Comics brand. After superhero comics experienced a short period of decline after World War 2 as other genres rose to prominence and controversy arose about the influence of superheroes on young minds, the so-called Silver Age of comics brought superheroes back to commercial prominence, and the Flash was one of the first characters to lead the charge when Barry Allen took up the mantle of the Scarlet Speedster in 1956. This incarnation of the character has been persistently popular ever since, making him a natural subject for a collectible like this one.
