Basing itself on the DC Comics style of the 1980s, this series celebrates one of the most established looks for the DC Comics pantheon of Super Heroes including the Man of Tomorrow, Superman. DESIGN The reverse design of this diamond-shaped coin features an engraved rendition of Supermans shield. Within the S of the shield, scenes from several Superman comic books are positioned as a unique collage that highlights Supermans long and illustrious history; this visual journey through Supermans different looks and eras is carefully covered by transparent enamel, which allows the engraving to peer through the red sheen of the S. A laser halftone pattern behind the shield adds a graphic element that fills the background and infuses design with a classic comic book feel. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt and the words CANADA, 2017 and 100 DOLLARS. SPECIAL FEATURES – A MINT FIRST: A COIN SHAPED LIKE SUPERMANS SHIELD!
