Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
This lenticular special effects collector issue 50 cent coin presents Superman in his “Golden Age” as seen on the cover of Superman #1, as well as in the newest rendition of the Man of Steel as he celebrates his 75th anniversary in 2013. Just tilt the coin and Superman transforms from the way he appeared in his debut in Action Comics in 1938, to the modern muscular Superman of the present. A matching collector issue postage stamp from Canada Post is also included.

The presentation for Superman Then and Now is a full colour comic book style folder that opens up to reveal a text recounting the story of Superman’s origins. A close-up of Superman on the back panel comes from the Golden age period of the late 1930s and 1940s. The coin is issued by the Royal Canadian Mint under license from DC Comics and Warner Brothers. The unusual denomination of 50 cents with a large 35 mm diameter adds to its collectability.

Superman is widely recognized as one of the iconic images of the 20th century and beyond, and perhaps even the greatest superhero character ever created. But did you know that Superman is Canadian? Superman was actually co-created by Canadian Joe Shuster, together with Jerry Siegel, and first published in 1938. Metropolis was based on the city of Toronto, and the Daily Planet was based on the Toronto Daily Star.

With special effects lenticular images and an official issue price of just $29.75, Superman Then and Now will be widely sought after by Superman fans and collectors in Canada and around the world.
