Superman managed a huge multi-coin smash-hit release by the Royal Canadian Mint, encompassing everything from vintage gold to modern hologram and lenticular silver. Admittedly it was his 75th, but Spiderman’s 50th seems to have passed by relatively unheralded. One of Marvels biggest draws, with massive-hit movies, multiple television series and a literal library of comic books, the low-profile seems completely at odds with the potential.
The only coin we’ve seen was this one, issued for Niue and limited to just 5,000 pieces. The coin is nice and clean, sporting some good artwork, but we feel a bit more could have been done considering the multi-decade history of the character.
