DC Comics Originals: Gauntlet - $10 Pure Silver Coin

The DC Comics Originals series has a classic, slightly retro style, recalling the look most comic book fans grew up with and remember fondly. Basing itself on the DC Comics style of the 1980s, this series celebrates one of the most established looks for the DC Comics pantheon of Super Heroes , and a few of its villains too. First wave in an exciting new series! Celebrate DC Comics’ greatest Super Heroes presented in their classic form, just the way you love them!

While selective colour recreates Superman’s classic look, the use of laser engraving technology on the villains recreates the look of inked comic book art, while striking a contrast between sheen and shadows that allows the characters to emerge from the background and gives the design its multi-layered feel.
