The coin design mimics a comic book splash page with its engraved rendition of the Bat Signal shining in the night sky over Gotham City. The colour and coin frosting allow the iconic beacon to retain its luminosity, particularly through the contrast between the colour elements and the coin's exposed silver surface.
Behind the Bat Signal, a laser halftone pattern adds a modern graphic element that recreates a night sky backdrop, allowing the signal to shine brightly while infusing the entirety of the design with a classic comic book feel.
Made by the Royal Canadian Mint under the authority of the central bank of Barbados, the obverse features the word “BARBADOS” and the year “2019” alongside the Coat of Arms of Barbados.
The coin celebrates 80 years of Batman and has a limited mintage of 10,000 coins worldwide.
