July 10, 2013: Superman Unchained #2is released during Superman's 75th anniversary. It features six variant covers, one of which has been painstakingly reproduced on this coin and gives the impression that Superman is lifting the tank right off the coin!
Continuing from the first issue, Superman manages to save a collapsing building in Dubai; it seems this was masterminded by a terrorist group called the Ascension, which Batman later asserts is waging war on the modern world. But there's more trouble on the horizon: Batman believes there is a new being whose physiology resembles Superman's, but whose powers may in fact be more powerful. While Lois Lane chases down a lead on the Ascension in Nova Scotia, Superman heads for the Salt Flats to confront General Sam Lane, but soon finds himself surrounded by powerful, advanced weaponry. Suddenly, General Lane's own mysterious weapon—the super-being Wraith—rises up to protect a weakened Superman and insists that he has been waiting a long time to confront Superman. With all of this unfolding, it's not surprising that The Man of Steel is unaware that Lex Luthor has escaped from prison and intends to "save the world"!

About the Design: As seen on one of the six variant covers associated with Superman Unchained #2 (2013), the reverse image features vibrant colour in its depiction of Superman in action. Battling a corrupt and covert military force, Superman displays an incredible feat of strength as he lifts a tank over his head with just one arm. In the engraved background, high-tech tanks close in on the Man of Steel™, leaving a wake of destruction and rubble in their path. Surrounding the reverse image, a series of concentric circles add depth to the design, creating the illusion that Superman is poised to leap out of the coin.
Packaging: Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded customer paperboard box.
