The Dark Knight has arrived in Silver: 2021’s Batman Logo 1 oz Silver Colorized Proof!
When it comes to superheroes and villains, Batman is as iconic as one can get without being Superman himself! Created in 1939 by Bob Kane and Bill Finger, Batman has gone from a secondary character in Superman’s shadow to powerhouse in his own right! With over 993 comic books and counting, several award-winning animated and live-action T.V. series, and 7 block-buster movies over the past 80 years have elevated Batman to a level few literary characters ever reach: he has become a true International cultural icon!
The New Zealand Mint has earned a reputation for having some of the best modern-issue silver coins released over the past decade...and with this new 1 oz. Silver Batman Logo coin, they have done it again!
The story of Bruce Wayne AKA Batman: The Bane of Criminals Everywhere
After witnessing the murder of both his parents at a young age, Bruce Wayne made it his life’s mission to wage an eternal war on the criminals of Gotham City, and the world at large. He is one of the most iconic fictional characters in the world and is well known for always being prepared (no matter who his enemy might be… even one of his allies or friends). Thanks to this incredible level of preparedness, he is considered to be the ultimate tactician and was the leader who helped form the Justice League!
He has spent his life training his body and mind to be as close to perfection as possible and has developed his own technology and weapons that would put almost any army or nation to shame! He has accomplished all this while maintaining his secret identity of Bruce Wayne (a man who’s extravagant billionaire lifestyle and connections make his life as Batman that much easier!).
This stunning coin is designed to be a recreation of the iconic Batman logo that was used on Jim Gordon’s famous ‘Bat-Signal’ (the captain of the Gotham City Police). This same logo is also used on all his armor and weapons over the last 82 years! The field of the coin is the same stunning yellow-color that was used in the Batman comic-books for decades, which makes the silver bat inside truly pop!
The reverse of this coin features the Ian Rank-Broadley’s rendition of Queen Elizabeth II alongside the inscriptions ‘NIUE’ , ‘2021’ , ‘ELIZABETH II’ , and ‘TWO DOLLARS’.
Each 1oz. Silver coin will be struck from .999 fine silver & will arrive in a custom-made collectors display with a beautiful outer packaging featuring the golden version of the iconic Batman Logo on the cover!
