Six unique coins depicting six different superheroes could make for an ideal gift for a youngster — especially when they are grouped together and presented within a superpowers-themed coin album.
Available for AUS $81.82, or about US $70.45, is the Perth Mint’s complete set of six 2014 Young Collectors Super Powers Coins. Designs, all by artist Tom Vaughan, are distinctive with each portraying a mighty superhero using their special superpower.
Coins of the 2014 Young Collectors Super Powers Series had been released in staggered intervals throughout this year with the last of the six launching in October. In fact, they may still be purchased separately for AUS $13.59, or about US $11.70. What can’t be bought by itself and comes free when ordering the set is the decorative coin album.
As described by the Perth Mint of Australia, here’s a brief breakdown of the six coins:
