2016 Fiji 2 Dollar 2-oz Silver Captain America Shield Proof
Celebrating the 75th Anniversary of Captain America – with 99.9% Fine Silver!
Captain America was a true product of his time, bursting onto the scene in 1940 to begin fighting the Axis powers in Captain America Comics #1. Since then, he became the first Marvel Comics character to burst out of comics and into the movies in 1944. This coin not only bears an image of his red, white, and blue shield, one of the most recognizable props in the history of comics, but is also dome shaped, thus giving it proper dimension. The Fijian coat of arms is on the reverse. At the center is a shield, which bears symbols of the country. The shield is supported by warriors on either side. All of the coin’s essential information is inscribed on this face.
- Red, White, and Blue Colorized Shield – Perfect not only for comics fans but any patriotic American.
- Two Troy Ounces of 99.9% Pure Silver – A shining canvas for the Shining City on a Hill!
- One of a Kind – No series necessary; this coin stands alone as a symbol of American values.
- Two Dollars Legal Tender for the Island Nation of Fiji – manufactured by Sunshine Mint, to which several countries turn for their minting.
- A Joint Effort – Shared product of the Fijian government, Sunshine Mint, and Marvel Comics.
- Limited Mintage – No more than 7,500 Captain America fans will be able to own this coin.
As with World War I, the United States stayed out of the Second World War in its early years. By 1940, though, America’s entry looked increasingly likely. It was within that context that Captain America, the embodiment of American values, burst onto the scene. When the United States was drawn into World War II, it is no surprise that his popularity exploded along with American patriotism. This coin comes in a black lacquer display case that is complete with a cloisonné style Captain America embellishment. Also included are a slipcover storage box that bears the Captain America 75th Anniversary theme, an official image of MARVEL, a cloisonné style lapel pin, and MARVEL’S Certificates of Authenticity. Share in this celebration of a character who personified the nation during one of its most trying times by adding this Captain America Shield Shaped Proof to your collection today!
