Marvel’s Slimy Anti-Hero Claws Its Way Onto This Silver Coin
When down-on-his luck journalist Eddie Brock becomes fused with an alien symbiotic suit formerly worn by the Amazing Spider-Man, he doesn’t become a crusading journalist. Instead, he becomes an avenging vigilante, a slobbering anti-hero bent on destroying our favorite wall-crawler. You see, Brock blames Spider-Man for ruining his career, and with the symbiote’s intimate knowledge of Spidey’s secret identity, Venom has gone on to become one of his most dangerous foes.
Now Venom and all his slimy gore is breaking loose on this coin minted in a full ounce of gleaming 99.99% silver! Struck by Australia’s world-renowned Perth Mint on behalf of the island nation of Tuvalu, this one-dollar legal-tender coin is the eighth release in Tuvalu’s popular Marvel Comics Bullion Series, joining Spider-Man, Thor, Black Panther, Iron Man, Deadpool, Captain America and the Hulk in a line-up of some of the world’s most popular comic book characters.
Each 2020 Tuvalu Venom One-Ounce Silver Coin available in this offer has been graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) as being in near-perfect Mint State-69 (MS69) condition, a distinction that means your almost-flawless coin will showcase an impressive full strike and indistinguishable imperfections – well above and beyond the quality of the vast majority of coins in the series. In addition, NGC has certified that these coins are First Releases (FR), a designation that means your coin was received by NGC or an NGC-approved depository within the first 30 days of its release. It will come sonically sealed in an acrylic holder with a white display core.
While the symbiote suit had been around for a few years, the Venom character did not make its official debut until May of 1988 in the groundbreaking release of Amazing Spider-Man #300 written by David Michelinie and illustrated by up-and-coming superstar artist Todd McFarlane. An evil mirror image of Spider-Man, Venom has since become one of the most popular characters in the entire Marvel universe and even appeared in his own film, 2018’s Venom starring Tom Hardy. The movie was a hit at the box office and a sequel is already in the works.
Venom has thrilled – and terrified – fans for more than 30 years with exciting adventures and knock down brawls with such heroes and villains as The Punisher, Ghost Rider, Deadpool, The Thing, Bullseye and even a no-holds-barred mêlée against Superman – yes THAT Superman – in a DC/Marvel crossover classic from 1997 in DC/Marvel: All Access #1. Thanks to Venom’s success in comics and film, you can bet fans and silver stackers alike around the world will be eager to scoop up these coins. With only 50,000 struck for worldwide release, the time to order your coin is now while you still can!
