30 Years of The Dark Knight Returns!
This commemorative coin for the 30th anniversary of The Dark Knight Returns is based on TDK creator Frank Miller’s favorite Batman illustration.
The coin pulls together−in one iconic image−all of the elements that made Frank Miller’s gothic vision of the Batman such a legendary work of industry-changing artistry. The savage violence, the unparalleled use of strobe-like, high-contrast graphics, the relentless “shock and awe” attack of the Gotham Guardian’s campaign−all of these elements have now been perfectly crystallized into the surface of one incredible, collectible coin.
Brilliantly conceived and flawlessly executed in 2oz of pure .999 silver, the big 50mm coin captures an image that steers the viewer into Batman’s haunting end game, creating a no-holds-barred visual that flash-freezes a moment of electrifying tension between justice and vengeance.
On its publication in 1986, Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns changed the landscape of the graphic novel industry−irrevocably. With its dark vision of Batman’s future and its stunning artwork, The Dark Knight Returns is the epic tale many fans consider the greatest Batman story ever told. 15 years later, Miller’s sequel, The Dark Knight Strikes Again, further redefined the boundaries of the superhero genre.
Celebrate the 30th Anniversary of The Dark Knight Returns with a new limited edition coin and collectors packaging that spotlights the illustrations of Frank Miller−the artist that re-imagined and re-energized the Batman franchise−a man all have hailed as a master of sequential illustration.
Every coin includes one of our trademark silver Certificates of Authenticity. The COA’s are sequentially numbered DK-0001 through DK-3000 and each one is made from 2g of pure .999 silver!
