The fictional superhero known as Spiderman was, in reality, a young boy named Peter Parker. Just a high school student, Parker lived with his Aunt May and Uncle Ben in New York City following the death of his parents. Like many other characters, Spiderman has early conflict internally with his power before learning to harness it for the greater good.
Spiderman was designed by writer-editor Stan Lee and writer-artist Steve Ditko, first appearing in the comic book anthology Amazing Fantasy in August 1962. Eventually, Spiderman’s popularity resulted in comic book series focusing on Spiderman, with the first and longest-lasting entitled The Amazing Spider-Man.
On the obverse of 2017 1 oz Tuvalu Spiderman Marvel Series Silver Coins is the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. The Queen is captured on this side in right-profile relief and was designed by Ian Rank-Broadley in 1998 for use on British coins from the Royal Mint. Her Majesty’s fourth-generation portrait continues in use on Australian, New Zealand, and other commonwealth coinage.
The reverse of the Tuvalu Spiderman Marvel Series Silver Coin looks at the character of Spiderman. His name is engraved in the very center of the coin as the web-spinner himself dominates the coin’s design field. In the background, a web pays homage to one of his greatest powers.
Your 2017 1 oz Tuvalu Spiderman Marvel Series Silver Coin available here today earned a near-perfect grade from the NGC. Coins with a Mint State 69 certification showcase full, original mint luster and a maximum of two minor detracting flaws. Those flaws are limited in nature to minuscule contact marks and hairlines.
