The Flash was a pioneering superhero from the earliest days of the Golden Age of comic books, one of the iconic characters that founded the DC universe. His lightning bolt sigil symbolizes his superhuman speed, a constant of the hero’s many incarnations across the years since his first appearance, and arguably the most famous version of the character was Barry Allen who took up the Silver Age mantle in 1956. He’s featured on the 2022 1 oz Proof Niue Gold Classic Superhero Flash Coin now available from JM Bullion.

The Flash made his first appearance in 1939, carrying the nickname the Scarlet Speedster, and would eventually also acquire the sobriquet “Fastest Man Alive.” Possessing the power to run, move and think at unimaginable speeds, he eventually became fast enough to travel through time and achieve union with an inter-dimensional “Speed Force.” Successive incarnations reinvented the hero for new eras, with one of the most famous being the Barry Allen Flash.
It’s this version of the Flash that appears on the 2022 Proof Niue Gold Classic Superhero Flash Coin, a new addition to the New Zealand Mint’s DC Comics collectibles. Featuring beautiful frosted engraving against a mirror-like background, this proof-quality coin comes in a coin case with themed box packaging. JM Bullion fully insures every shipment, and with the extremely limited supply, we recommend ordering early.
Queen Elizabeth II’s effigy as designed by Ian Rank-Broadley features on the coin’s obverse side, confirming it as legal tender. It’s accompanied by the inscriptions “ELIZABETH II,” “NIUE,” “250 DOLLARS” and “2022.”
The coin’s reverse side features the Flash striking a powerful pose alongside his iconic lightning-bolt logo. It also includes inscriptions verifying the coin’s weight and contents and the copyright and trademark of DC.
