AUSTIN, Texas, Oct. 29, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Legendary Precious Metals, a new initiative from industry leader U.S. Money Reserve, unveiled a highly-anticipated and exclusive coin series during Stan Lee's Comic Con in Los Angeles on Friday, October 27: The 2017 Spider-Man: Homecoming coin series. Celebrating the first installment of Marvel's latest Spider-Man trilogy, this unforgettable series of pure gold and silver coins pays the ultimate tribute to everyone's friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.
The 2017 Spider-Man: Homecoming coin series brings to life the iconic character in all of its "Spidey" glory with three legendary coins struck from .9999 pure gold or .999 pure silver: 1 oz. Gold Black Proof High Relief, 1 oz. Silver Black Proof High Relief and 1 Kilo Silver Black Proof High Relief. Designated with the elite "First Day of Issue" label from PCGS, each coin is certified in the highest grades available—museum-quality 70 or near-flawless 69—and comes inside a beautiful collector's box featuring vibrant Spider-Man artwork along with an individually numbered, retro-inspired Certificate of Authenticity.
Notably, Stan Lee, Spider-Man co-creator and Marvel Comics legend, has hand-signed a limited number of exclusive PCGS labels for the 1 oz. Gold Black Proof High Relief Coin. PCGS, a global leader in third-party coin certification, worked closely with Stan Lee on this collection.
David Hall, PCGS co-founder and president of Collectors Universe, said, "It's been a privilege for our team to work with the one-and-only Stan Lee. His signature further enhances each gold coin, making this exclusive series all the more thrilling."
The Spider-Man: Homecoming coin series showcases impressively high reliefs on a black proof finish coin field with an intricate design of Spider-Man scaling a textured brick wall.
Both silver coins were produced using smartminting© technology, an innovation developed by Liechtenstein's Coin Invest Trust, that makes it possible to strike an ultra high relief on a standard size coin. Additionally, advanced digital printing technology was used to apply color to the smartminting© relief. Previously, only flat fields could feature color application. This detailed process results in a colorized Spider-Man flying off the coin's striking silver finish.
"Revolutionary technology and a revolutionary pop culture icon are the perfect ingredients to create this numismatic masterpiece," said Heimo Steriti, CEO of Coin Invest Trust. "It's been an honor to collaborate with Legendary Precious Metals on such an exciting collection that both comic book fans and precious metals owners will be in awe of for years to come."
While the Spider-Man: Homecoming coin series is the first-ever coin series offered and produced by Legendary Precious Metals, the team behind it is no stranger to proprietary gold and silver coin minting. Legendary Precious Metals is owned and operated by U.S. Money Reserve, a leading distributor of government-issued precious metals and the exclusive dealer of the successful 75th Anniversary Pearl Harbor coin series from Australia's Perth Mint.
"Legendary Precious Metals is a strategic extension of the U.S. Money Reserve brand that we've been developing since the beginning of the year," U.S. Money Reserve President Philip N. Diehl said. "Our goal is to better serve customers who enjoy collecting unique commemorative coins that still maintain our signature commitment to legal-tender coinage."
Speaking on the Spider-Man: Homecoming coin series, Diehl said, "We're excited to see all of our hard-working partnerships come together and produce this fantastic piece of numismatic and comic book history."
U.S. Money Reserve CEO Angela Koch is similarly excited about the launch of this new coin series at Stan Lee's Los Angeles Comic Con. The interactive booth display, presented by Legendary Precious Metals, is a Spider-Man: Homecoming-themed vault where attendees can walk around in and fully immerse themselves in an experience unlike any other.
"Our marketing and promotional efforts have really brought this whole project to life, reaffirming our position as an innovative and forward-thinking force in the field of precious metals," Koch said.
