This is a brand new silver bullion coin, limited in mintage to just 50,000 pieces. The coins come in plastic capsules or foil wraps of 20 coins and boxes of 100. Each coin contains 1oz of silver, struck to 999.9 purity by the world-renowned Perth Mint. This is an official Marvel comics product, manufactured on behalf of the tiny Polynesian island of Tuvalu.
The Hulk silver 1oz coin is the seventh release in a series celebrating Marvel superheroes. It follows the success of the Spiderman, Thor, Black Panther, Captain Marvel and Deadpool coins. Coins are carefully released to capitalise on the Marvel movie releases of the same name. Like all our silver coins, we can exclusively deliver them VAT-free.
While the obverse of the coin features a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, it’s the illustration on the reverse that really excites. It features a depiction of the famous Hulk, looking typically angry, clenching his fist. The design is certainly more sympathetic to the Marvel comics than the later TV series. The official Marvel logo is printed above his head, confirming the silver coin as official Marvel merchandise, along with the name ‘HULK’. The unique background is a cracked tactile surface.
The story of the Hulk stems from his alter ego, mild-mannered Dr Banner, whose life changes forever when he is accidentally exposed to huge levels of gamma rays. The resulting transformation is induced when Dr Banner comes under duress, changing him into the super-strong Hulk. Now The Hulk is familiar to audiences as part of the team of superheroes in the Marvel universe.
The Marvel universe and superheroes are becoming increasingly popular due to the huge success of the Marvel film franchise. This is definitely lead to increased demand for merchandise including the Marvel coin range. With silver prices offering great value, it’s possible for silver collectors to afford the entire series of coins. And with only 50,000 coins minted for each superhero, limited supply could lead to increased premiums.
