Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day saviour, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with BATMANTM and SUPERMANTM at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.
- With the release of the highly anticipated movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the Royal Canadian Mint is excited to introduce an unforgettable series of coins!
- Frosted finishes add a contrasting element to the polygon shapes that create a stunning “shattered glass” effect; this dramatic visual symbolizes the “shattering” of what was established in the previous film, MAN OF STEELTM.
- The intricate and ultra-modern design includes the engraving of Wonder Woman’s name in the Kryptonian syllabic writing system established by renowned Canadian linguist Dr. Christine Schreyer.
- The four-coin subscription ensures you won’t miss out on any of the coins in this set; each subscription includes a unique collector case that allows you to display these coins side by side, for all to see.
Established with firm Canadian roots, Superman was the first Super Hero, spawning countless new characters in the DC COMICSTM 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 image features the application of colour over engraving in its depiction of WONDER WOMANTM in a fierce battle-ready pose. In the background, carefully positioned polygon shapes are contrasted through the use of frosted finishes in order to create a stunning “shattered glass” effect; this visual element is highly symbolic, for it represents the ‘shattering” of what was established in Man of Steel and the challenges that
lie ahead after Superman has revealed himself to the world. Wonder Woman is a force to be reckoned with in the red, gold and blue colours of her Phoenician armour, complete with tiara and bracelets; the Lasso of Truth is strapped in its usual position on her waist as she holds a sword in one hand, and clenches the other to make a fist. Her facial features convey her famous strength, fearlessness and resolve, while the impression of wind-blown locks infuses the design with a sense of movement. To the right of this warrior is the engraved identifier “WONDER WOMAN” in the Kryptonian syllabic writing system.
