2017 Cook Islands 5-oz Silver Spiderman NGC PF70UCAM FDI Mercanti/Lee
Two Superheroes Unite for One Blockbuster Proof!
(Web-slinging) hands down, one of 2017's hottest films is "Spider-Man: Homecoming." But why the title? If you're a die-hard Marvel fan, it's the homecoming of Spider-Man to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, or MCU. Tony Stark's quick recruitment of Peter Parker in 2016's "Captain America: Civil War" has blossomed into a full-on "internship" at Stark Industries. But when Spider-Man's pursuit of The Vulture threatens the lives of innocent people, Stark repossesses Peter's tricked-out suit -- leaving him with only his wits and radioactive gifts to save the day. But, even with victory in sight, what future wars lie ahead for Spider-Man and the rest of the Avengers?
An Acclaimed Artist Finds His Perfect Subject!
It's also a homecoming for John Mercanti, 12th Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint and renowned designer of coins, including the reverse of the beloved United States Silver Eagle. A true celebrity in the coin world, mention Mercanti's name among collectors and you'll receive instant recognition. But, it turns out that Mercanti is also a massive comic book fan! When the opportunity to design a coin for "Spider-Man: Homecoming" came up, John cleared his work schedule just to work on this "dream come true." Now, the superhero of coin design has completed this gorgeous passion project -- introducing the 5-oz Silver Spider-Man: Homecoming Proof!
The First Five Ounce Silver Spider-Man Proof EVER!
That's right! With Spider-Man in full web-slinging and sky-swinging form, John Mercanti's design brings Peter Parker's alter ego to life in five ounces of 99.9% pure silver for the first time ever! The action is all set against an intricate spider web background and wreathed with the title "Spider-Man: Homecoming." Flip over this legal tender 25 dollar Cook Islands coin to find Ian Rank-Broadley's portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Proof-minted using polished dies, multiple strikes and hand-selected planchets, this coin shines with mirror-like surfaces and razor-sharp details.
