Marvel Comics’ Amazing Fantasy #15 was the issue that launched the career of one of the most famous superheroes in all of comics, the light-hearted and wise-cracking Spiderman. As such, it’s a legendary comic whose still-extant issues are some of the most valuable collectible comics on the market: one issue set a record in 2021 as the most expensive comic ever sold, selling for $3.6 million at Heritage Auction’s Signature Comics & Comic Art auction. This story’s collectible makes ideal subject matter for another kind of collectible: the New Zealand Mint’s first Marvel-themed pure silver coin. The 2023 Niue COMIX Amazing Fantasy #15 1 oz Silver Coin is now available from Provident Metals.
The 2023 Niue COMIX Amazing Fantasy #15 Silver Coin features full-color artwork and a striking rectangular design that echoes the appearance of a comic book in miniature, right down to colors on the sides representing the pages and spine. This coin ships fully insured against loss or damage by the team at Provident Metals.
The obverse side features Niue’s Coat of Arms, accompanied by inscriptions “TWO DOLLARS” and “2023,” along with Marvel’s copyright and the weight and purity of the coin’s silver contents.
The cover of Amazing Fantasy #15 is replicated in miniature on the coin’s reverse. It shows Spider-Man swinging above the streets of New York City with a criminal dangling from one hand, and shows the issue’s original messaging and price.
Amazing Fantasy #15 introduced all the classic elements of Spider-Man’s backstory. It featured his original identity as mild-mannered everyday teen Peter Parker, showed the origin of his powers in a radioactive spider bite, covered his early attempts to use his might in professional wrestling, showed the tragic death of his Uncle Ben at the hands of a burglar he later discovered he could have stopped, and revealed his emergence as a hero as he learned the meaning of the maxim “with great power comes great responsibility” are all included. The issue was the launching pad for the character’s highly successful solo title, which led to his becoming a force in multiple forms of media from television to movies and video games.
