Today brings some exciting new releases (& restocks) from the amazing New Zealand Mint. Niue Mint specialize in incredibly detailed proof coins celebrating all manner of pop culture. With the biggest cinematic release of March being The Batman, this of course features prominantly.
The Niue Mint Batman I Am the Shadows 1 oz Silver Coin captures the atmosphere of Gotham City brilliantly. This coin uses an antique finish, colorized arch window and theatrical bat emblem cutout.
In commemoration of the year for this movie release, the mintage is just 2,022 and it is completely sold out at the mint already so no restocks are possible.
Also in celebration of The Batman comes a new and yet somewhat familiar series. Following the success of the Faces of the Empire line, comes Faces of Gotham! It captures the most iconic & infamous inhabitants of Gotham City, starting with Batman, Robin and The Joker. These colorized proof coins are styled more towards the comics than the movies so there's a lot of DC nostalgia in this new line.
These coins utilize a light relief to give a more 3D feel than you'd otherwise see. Mintages on the Faces of Gotham series are 5,000 per coin and like Faces of the Empire, we're expecting to see monthly new releases that add to this new set of collectibles.
The fun doesn't end there for DC fans however as the Niue Mint 2022 Classic Superman has now debuted too.
This 1 troy oz silver proof features two different poses of the original Man of Steel. The figures themselves are frosted silver against a mirror finish backdrop.
The 1 oz Silver has a mintage of just 5000 and is presented in a very nice themed display box.
For our DC fans we have now also restocked the Aquaman Man Emblem, Flash Emblem and the Green Lantern 1 oz Silver Coins.
Two new additions to the Niue Mint Faces of the Empire series are now available. Fresh from Rogue One comes the Scarif Stormtrooper and the Hovertank Pilot!
The helm of Scarif Stormtroopers in particular is so iconic to Rogue One and sure to be a fast seller from this popular series.
