Your coin's design delves into the pages of vintage comic books to pay homage to DC Comics Super Heroes in their earliest forms. Traditional engraving frames each of the laser-engraved comic book panels that appeared in early issues of DC Comics. Together, they form a stunning collage of fan-favourites, including: Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, Robin (Dick Grayson), The Flash (Jay Garrick), Green Lantern (Alan Scott), Doctor Fate, Hawkman, Catwoman, Black Canary, The Penguin, The Joker, even the Batmobile. The reverse gold plating adds a fitting gleam and luminosity to this ode to the Golden Age of Comic Books—save for the silvery image of Superman at the centre, where a laser halftone pattern adds a modern flair as the precision-engraved "Champion of the Oppressed" bursts through the page. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
