Change in my pocket
The masters of the collectible market at Sideshow and those kooky kiwis down at the New Zealand Mint are at it again! Is there any image they will not cast in pure silver and grace with the image of Queen Elizabeth II? Typically I like my coinage to be as round as the wheels on the Batmobeast, has anyone checked to see if this will fit in a vending machine? I have to admit that a full-color reproduction of Action Comics #1 is a pretty cool way to mint some legal tender.
Let’s look at the pitch and take take a gander at some close-up pictures.

To mimic the comic book, it is crafted into a rectangular coin and includes further colorization on the four sides to represent the spine and pages. Small flashes of silver have been left on the cover to catch the light!
