Canada mints new Superman coins

The Royal Canadian Mint pays tribute to the Man of Steel with limited-edition commemorative coins made of silver and gold...not Kryptonite.

It's not a bird! It's not a plane! It's a Superman coin collection! Last year, the Royal Canadian Mint released commemorative coins celebrating the Man of Steel himself, Superman. And now it's continuing to honor the superhero with another collectible coin set.

While these coins aren't made from Kryptonite, they do range from fine silver to 14-karat gold. The 2014 collection includes four new coins. A fine silver coin of Superman from the Action Comics #419 cover costs about $90 for a $15-face-value coin. The half-ounce fine silver coin depicts Superman lifting a car, from the Action Comics #1 cover. The $10-face-vaule coin costs about $70.

The one ounce fine silver coin depicts a newer look of the Man of Steel from the Superman Annual #1 cover published in 2012. The $20-face-value coin costs around $110.

The most expensive coin is the 14-karat gold coin of the famous red "S" on Superman's costume depicted on The Adventures of Superman comic #596. The $100-face-value coin costs around $750.

Each coin is encapsulated and presented in a premium graphic case with a beauty box.
