Your coin mimics a comic book splash page with its engraved rendition of BATMANTM. With arms outstretched and knees bent, BATMANTM fearlessly soars into action against the GOTHAM CITYTM skyline. The application of blue, grey and yellow colouring over the detailed engraving recreate his iconic costume and symbol, while the alternating shades of blue and black add shadowing to his bat-like webbed cape. To the far right, the classic BATMANTM logo is engraved just above the skyscrapers, while a laser halftone pattern adds a modern graphic element in the background that infuses the entirety of the design with a classic comic book feel.
Did you know…
- The 1940s saw many important elements introduced into Batman’s story, including the first-time appearance of GOTHAM CITYTM in Detective Comics #48 (February 1941) and the first use of the BAT-SIGNALTM a year later in Detective Comics #60 (February 1942).
- SUPERMANTM only entrusts one person with a kryptonite ring, should he go rogue. Deep in the vaults of the Batcave, BATMANTM holds this kryptonite ring and SUPERMANTM can rest easy knowing his best friend will never misuse it.
- Despite being known as a solitary hero, BATMANTM has a team of allies in his fight against the criminal underworld. These SUPER HEROESTM include ROBINTM and BATGIRLTM, but also Police Commissioner James Gordon and his most trusted ally, butler Alfred Pennyworth.
This features the Susanna Blunt effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
