Spiderman is one of the most recognized superheroes from the Marvel Comic universe. Created by the iconic Marvel writer and editor Stan Lee, Spiderman first appeared in the comic book Amazing Fantasy in the 15th issue released August 1962. In recent years, Spiderman has enjoyed renewed interest on the strength of a feature film franchise that received rave reviews. These 2017 1 oz Tuvalu Spiderman Marvel Series Silver Coins are the first in the Marvel Comic-themed series and are all a product of the Perth Mint in Australia.
On the reverse of the Tuvalu Spiderman Marvel Series coin is the image of Peter Parker, in his superhero role as Spiderman. Spidey is depicted crouched and ready to sling web as he rushes off to stop a villain. The background field features the image of a web, and includes engravings of the Marvel copyright logo, and the name “Spider-Man.”
The obverse of the 2017 1 oz Tuvalu Spiderman Marvel Series Silver Coin includes Queen Elizabeth II’s right-profile portrait. This is the fourth-generation image of the Queen on commonwealth coinage, and was created in 1998 by Sir Ian Rank-Broadley.
