What’s up with derpy Batman? It should look like a fair fight.

Kris –

It does look like the depiction of the “jumping/flying Superman (TM) on this coin is beating up Batman (TM) badly & getting ready to kick his rather large codpiece! Lol. I wonder who wins in the movie version “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” (TM)? Any guesses anyone?

Happy collecting Kris!

Just a small request, but could you please publish photos of RCM & Perth Mint Australia coin obverse designs since they differ as to the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. This article states that the reverse of this coin design has the inscription “Canada” on it, which is wrong.
Thanks!

Kris –

Received my 5 coins & they look great. A fantastic fight scene for sure! My 3-D coins with RCM limited edition collectors movie cards are on their way. Can’t wait to see them & collect all the very limited edition cards only available through RCM.!

Happy collecting.
