Released in 2011, the "supersized" Superman Action Comics #1 presented a new, updated take on Superman as part of the relaunch of DC Comics titles; known as The New 52, the titles within each series offer a more modern take on its slate of characters through reimagined storylines, backstories and elements of their costumes. In the New 52 universe, Superman is at the beginning of his crime-fighting career: he's young, he can't fly yet, he has a make-shift costume and he's more of a vigilante. Blink and you might miss it! The issue includes a few subtleties including a cameo appearance by the character Pandora (who appeared in every #1 issue of The New 52 series) and Lois Lane's zip-up shirt that reads "Keystone City"the home of another superhero: The Flash! This issue featured several variant covers.

The reverse image recreates the 2011 cover of Action Comics #1 , and features Superman as he runs from the authorities through the streets of Metropolis. The original artwork introduced a more modern take on a young Superman; wearing denim jeans and boots, Superman still maintains elements from his traditional costume with a blue shirt, red cape and the iconic'S' shield emblazoned across his chest. Vibrant color enhances the engraved portrait of Superman, even adding a red glow to the streaks caused by bullets that do little to slow him down. A series of concentric circles frame the reverse, adding depth to the overall design and creating the illusion that Superman is racing out from the coin at breakneck speed towards the viewer.

Unsearched All of the coins offered in this listing are unsearched.Many coin dealers search all coins when they are received from the Mint. They "cherry-pick" the best coins. Then submit them to be graded, certified, and slabbed by PCGS, NGC, ANACS, etc. When a dealer searches coins, those that they sell in original Mint packaging are only lesser quality coins.
Photos: When a listing offers multiples of the same coin, one coin is picked at random and photographed. Since all coins offered in that listing are essentially identical, the coin photographed is representative of all coins offered. Surface areas that appear black on some proof coin photos are actually highly polished, mirror-bright metal reflecting the color of the camera. We often include proof coin photos with the coin slightly tilted to better depict the mirror bright surfaces.
However, tilting the coin may resulting one side being slightly out of focus. Whenever possible, we use actual photos of our coins, rather than just stock artwork from the Mint. We frequently update and upgrade the photos that appear with our listings, using improved cameras and lenses and better lighting. We will honor your requests for additional photos as quickly as our schedule permits.
