The release of the first Marvel Icons Series coin in late 2018 was met with an incredible degree of interest among collectors. The coins in this series emulate the appearance of the masks of some of the greatest superheroes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Marvel Comics. The collection launched with the 2019 date-marked Iron Man design. The design of the coins themselves is the least of the attraction. The silver foil Certificates of Authenticity are groundbreaking and representing a unique collectible option. Now, the second coin from the Marvel Icons Series is available for those looking to grab each release in this collection of Fiji silver coins.
Spiderman Makes His Debut
The web-slinger is one of the most beloved characters in Marvel Comics. Spiderman holds a special place in the history of Marvel Comics and the Marvel Cinematic Universe as the first teenage superhero. On the obverse side of 2019 2 oz Antique Fiji Marvel Spiderman Mask Silver Coin is a depiction of the web-slinger’s mask on a 3D, domed surface. These 2 oz silver coins are impressive in their depiction of Spiderman’s mask with no other markings or engravings on the surface. The webs he weaves crisscross the mask and the almond-shaped outlines of his eyes stare hauntingly at you as you view the coin. Each one has an antique polish that helps to highlight the intricate details of the coin’s design.
For the reverse design field, the coins have a flat surface with the coat of arms for Fiji. The Fijian coat of arms is as intricate as any nation’s heraldic symbolism. The shield is quartered by the Cross of St. George and topped by the golden Lion of England, both remnants of Great Britain’s territorial control over the island. The lion holds a cacao pod in its paws and three of the four quadrants also feature symbols of Fiji’s natural resources in the form of sugarcane, coconut palms, and bananas. The lower-left quadrant has a dove with an olive branch representing peace. Inscriptions on this side include “Fiji 2019,” 2 oz .999 Fine Silver,” and “5 Dollars.” The copyright logo of Marvel is also found on this side.
Packaging and COA Details
Each of the 2019 Antique Fiji Spiderman Mask Domed Coins available in this release come with a sleek, black presentation box. The coins are housed with the domed, obverse side facing up as you open the case. The individual coins in this series come with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity that includes the weight, purity, serial number, face value, nation of issue, and mintage of the coins in the series. All of the Marvel Icon Series coins come with a very unique Certificate of Authenticity. The COAs available in this series feature 2 Grams of pure silver making them truly unique compared to other collectible series.
Background on Spider-Man
Spiderman was created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, and he made his first appearance in Marvel Comics in Amazing Fantasy #15 which was issued in August 1962. A high school student named Peter Parker, Spiderman’s debut marked the first time a teenager was also a superhero. Parker was orphaned as a young child and raised with his Aunt May and Uncle Ben. He is famously pressed to serve the better good following the death of his Uncle Ben.
With the growing popularity of Marvel Cinematic Universe films, it is easy to forget that Spiderman’s initial successes in the early 2000s launched the overall popularity of the superhero-themed feature films. Tobey Maguire took on the lead role in Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2, and Spider-Man 3 between 2002 and 2007. The 2008 release of Iron Man supercharged the series that went on to feature more Iron Man films along with The Avengers franchise and other singularly-focused Marvel superhero films. Spiderman has featured more recently in two Amazing Spider-Man films in 2012 and 2014, and Spider-Man Homecoming in 2017.
