FIVE DECADES OF SPIDEY…
This officially licensed 2013 silver Spider-Man coin was issued by the Island of Niue, a New Zealand territory known for authorizing a large variety of coins made specifically for collectors. Created to celebrate 50 Years of Spider-Man, this coin contains 1 oz. of fine silver and has been colorized to really bring a half century’s worth of The Web Head’s amazing adventures to life!
2013 marked 50 years since Peter Parker met a radioactive spider in the pages of Amazing Fantasy #15. Creators Stan Lee and Steve Ditko didn’t know it at the time, but they were launching one of the most popular comic book characters ever with that simple story.
In the five decades since, Spider-Man has starred in more than 1,000 comic book adventures. The Amazing Spider-Man, his flagship book, has proved so popular that at some points it’s been published as many as three times a month. That’s a lot of stories for one superhero, and a lot of drawing from a lot of great artists (but he’s definitely holding up well for his age).
