Art of Collecting
For 80 years, the Dark Knight has stood as a symbol of determination, bravery and justice to generations of fans. To commemorate the 80th Anniversary of Batman, the Royal Canadian Mint release the Bat Signal Silver Coin.
Bruce Wayne is brought up in Wayne Manor and leads a happy and privileged existence until the age of eight, when his parents are killed in a mugging. Bruce swears an oath to rid the city of the evil that took his parents’ lives. He engages in intense intellectual and physical training; however, he realizes that he must also create a disguise terrible enough to strike terror into criminals’ hearts. As if responding to his desires, a bat suddenly flies through the window, inspiring Bruce to assume the persona of BATMAN.
Measuring 36mm in diameter, the reverse of the coin mimics a comic book splash page with its engraved rendition of the Bat Signal shining in the night sky over Gotham City. This is a distress signal to summon the superhero, Batman. Behind the Bat Signal, a laser halftone pattern adds a modern graphic element that recreates a night sky backdrop, bringing greater contrast to the Bat Signal.
Produced by the Royal Canadian Mint, the obverse of the coin features the country’s name “BARBADOS” and the year “2019” alongside the Coat of Arms of Barbados.
By bringing the coin close to a light source for a few minutes, the coin will be able to glow in the dark, much like a Gotham City night scene!
The coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a Batman theme box. Limited Mintage of just 10,000 pieces worldwide.
DC comics is a popular brand with many superheroes under them. We love this as much as the Harley Quinn and Joker Silver Miniature we reviewed in our articles previously. The Bat Signal Batman Glow in the Dark Silver Coin is something more simple, least expensive and a fantastic collection.
