Since his first appearance in 1938, millions of readers and movie-goers have been captivated by the adventures of Clark Kent and his secret identity as Superman. Safe from the destruction of his home planet Krypton, the infant space traveler was discovered near Smallville, Kansas, by Jonathan and Martha Kent, who raised him as their son. They instilled in him the strong values and beliefs that compel him to use his superhuman abilities for the greater good. As an adult living in the big city of Metropolis, Clark keeps his powers a secret thanks to his persona as a mild-mannered reporter; but as Superman, he becomes a powerful symbol of strength and valor (to say nothing of truth, justice while battling some of the greatest villains of all time.

Celebrate the 75th Anniversary of Superman™ with the Modern Day $15 pure silver proof, depicting a full color, iconic image of the Man of Steel™ flying and ready for action!

The cover image of The Adventures of Superman #596, which hit newsstands on September 12, 2001, featured that most iconic Superman image - Clark Kent peeling away his shirt to reveal the symbol that is forever synonymous with Superman.

Despite the cover image (featured on the coin's reverse), the cover tagline states “This is NOT a job for Superman.” This teaser for the story titled “Shipbuilding” alludes to Superman's state of mind in The Adventures of Superman #596. In the aftermath of the tragic Imperiex War, many question why Superman appears unwilling to participate in the global recovery efforts. After Superman jumps into action to stop a weather catastrophe, then rescues a construction worker, he is confronted by President Lex Luthor, who pointedly asks Superman why he doesn't take on all the recovery efforts himself. In response, Superman explains that he has come to the realization that he is not here to do everything for mankind; otherwise, it would all mean nothing.

Did you know...

•  Superman's nemesis, Lex Luthor, ran for President of the United States in the 2000 election! He won, but his term didn't last long before he was impeached!
•  The S-shield on the cover of The Adventures of Superman #596 was noticeably different, replacing the yellow background with a black one. It became a symbol of remembrance for those lost in the Imperiex War, which was chronicled in preceding issues.
