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!


Released in 2011, Superman Action Comics #1 was the Man of Steel's first annual within the New 52 universe, which relaunched DC Comics titles in 2011 with revamped storylines. As Superman Annual #1's tagline suggests, “The Man of Steel faces an alien extinction” with the return of Helspont, a Daemonite who views humanity as the key to the genetic salvation of his people. Despite Superman's confident pose on the cover (and on the coin's stunning obverse), he and Earth's heroes come under attack. Overpowering Superman, Helspont tells him he is sparing his life because he considers Superman to be the defender of his “investment.” With a final, taunting mention of Superman's dead father, Jor-El, Helspont leaves Superman to ponder his role and this latest threat to humanity: “Everything I've accomplished, every life I've ever saved, what good has it all been if someone so much more powerful than I am can just come and... take it all away?”

•  In this universe, Clark Kent and Lois Lane aren't a romantic item. In fact, Lois doesn't work alongside Clark at the Daily Planet anymore! After Galaxy Communications assumed ownership of the newspaper, Lois moved into their television division.
•  The story, titled “Protector of the People,” features appearances by many other DC superheroes, including Martian Manhunter, Grifter, Starfire and Hawkman.
•  The new Kryptonian battle armor has replaced Superman's costume; gone are Superman's red trunks, and his yellow belt is now a red one.
