Even Superman's Coins Are Lenticular – And In French Kryptonian

coin1This month, all of Superman's comics have lenticular covers. But it's not stopping there. The Royal Canadian Mint are minting 50 cent coins, each with a lenticular "tails" side, featuring Superman in 1938 and 2013, the art of Jerry Siegel and Jim Lee respectively, depending which angle you hold the coin. Oh and Kryptonian letters that officially read 75 Years Of Superman. But get this, because it's Canada, they have to do it twice – in English Kryptonian and French Kryptonian. Seriously.


Sadly, they're not 3D. And the Queen's head on the front isn't equally lenticular. Shame, they could have shown her in 1938 as well.

It also can be ordered in this collectible case. "Collectible" in that they'll only make a million of them.
