2018 Canadian The Justice LeagueTM — Batman and Aquaman Proof Silver Coin
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions. As with Justice League issues, colorist (and fellow Canadian) Brad Anderson has brought Fabok’s reverse designs to life in vibrant, comic book-worthy colour! A collectible tribute to the comic book-based characters of the eagerly awaited film The Justice League—but with a proud “made in Canada” twist! Special colour application on Batman’s costume gives it a leather-like finish, while a “glistening” Aquaman looks like he just emerged from the sea! In the background, laser engraving adds a frosted finish to the polygon shapes that form a “shattered glass” effect in the background—just as they did on our previously released Batman v Superman: Dawn of JusticeTM coins! Place them side-by-side and in order—Wonder Woman/ The Flash, Cyborg/ Superman, Aquaman/ Batman —to see how the shattered glass effect unites them all as a larger design, like individuals coming together to form a whole!
Exclusively designed by Canadian comic book artist Jason Fabok, the original art on the reverse features two members of the Justice League in an action pose. With arms outstretched wide, the caped figure of Batman is followed closely by a flurry of bats in flight, and by the trident-wielding Aquaman behind him. Both are wearing alternate versions of their iconic costumes: Batman is attired in an upgraded costume equipped with tactical armour and goggles; in contrast, the tattooed Aquaman has eschewed full garb in favour of shoulder armour and forearm guards. Fabok’s artwork is brought to life by the rich, vibrant colours of Canadian colorist Brad Anderson, while a special colour application adds a water-like effect to Aquaman’s appearance and a leather-like effect to Batman’s costume. In the background, the frosted look of laser-engraved polygon shapes creates a “shattered glass” effect that adds to the feeling of movement within the design, while providing an element of continuity to all three 1 oz. coins in this collection.
