Royal Canadian Mint 2014 Superman Gold and Silver Coins

The Royal Canadian Mint has officially launched a collection of four new Superman gold and silver coins. Pre-orders for the coins were accepted from Master’s Club members starting late last week. Today, the designs were officially unveiled and orders opened to the general public.

Last year, the Royal Canadian Mint had released a series of Superman themed coins to coincide with the 75th anniversary of the character. The four new coins release this year each feature iconic depictions of Superman taken from comic book covers.

    Thought these coins would have more interest here. I think they are nicer than last years coins. Ordered the 10 dollar coin.

  5. Wes says

    These coins are selling fast. Canada Post office had them this morning it now says they are sold out.

  6. Wes says

    Apparently the Gold coin and the 10 dollar Action comics cover seem to be the most popular. Nice that an Action comic book #1 was just recently sold for over three million dollars a couple weeks ago. Can only hope the coin will demand that much someday.

  7. Wes says

    Gold coin doesn’t look as good to me in actual photos of the coin. The 10 dollar coin looks even better in actual photo of the coin. Can’t wait to see it in person.
