Established with firm Canadian roots, SUPERMAN™ was the first SUPER HERO™, spawning countless new characters in the DC COMICS™ pantheon. He was the inspiration for a new archetype that not only still exists today, but is more popular than ever. Many important Canadian visionaries continue to shape the DC COMICS™ Universe even today, lending their talents as storytellers and further building on the history that began in 1938.
The reverse design features a mosaic of some of the greatest SUPER HEROES™ in the DC UNIVERSE™, all in classic action poses. In the foreground, rich colour recreates the iconic costumes of “The Trinity”: the blue, grey, black and yellow of Batman’s costume as he swings into battle; the bright red, yellow and blue of Superman’s bold S-Shield as he flies through the air; the red, yellow, white and blue of Wonder Woman’s multi-patterned costume with the powerful Lasso of Truth strapped to her belt. Behind them are the engraved depictions of the next generation of DC COMICS™ SUPER HEROES™—BATGIRL™, NIGHTWING™, SUPERGIRL™ and WONDER GIRL™—who are always eager to join the fight. This dynamic group shot is engraved over a laser halftone pattern that adds a modern graphic element to the design, while completing the coin’s classic comic book look and feel.
