This year, to celebrate Superman’s 75th Birthday, The Royal Canadian Mint released a series of coins featuring Kal-El in different decades. This 75th birthday became an big event for the Canadian government since the late Joe Shuster, the artist who co-created Superman, was born in Toronto.
Here are my pictorial essay all about the coins, none of which I possess because they are massively expensive.
