The stamp artwork has been exclusively designed by the prestigious Comic artist, Jim Cheung and colourist, Laura Martin.

4. The Limited Edition Superman Action Comics #1 Sculpture
Words aren’t quite enough for this piece, let’s take a look first…
The FIRST in a series of classic superhero comic book covers in the form of a premium pewter sculpture, the experts at Royal Selangor never fail to amaze me.
In 2020, Action Comics #1 became the first to sell at auction for $1million. Now one of the most expensive and coveted comic books of all time, Royal Selangor have paid a unique tribute to a collectable classic with world-class precision and craftsmanship.
Just 800 of these gravity defying superman sculptures have been commissioned worldwide, making this an exceptionally rare piece in the well-established comic market.

5. The DC Comics Premium Capsule Boxed Edition
Since the release of Nolan’s Oscar Winning Batman film in the summer of 2008, a year hasn’t gone by without a Superhero film in the cinemas.
Significantly, the stamps were issued in the United States BEFORE that first film and subsequent soaring in the franchise’s popularity, which is why few collectors know about them. Especially here in the UK.
The set features the famous images of some of DC Comics’ best known characters – including Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and Aquaman. And just like the complete collector’s edition, this premium US stamps boxed edition features stamps that are encapsulated for years to come, and arrives in a superb deluxe presentation case along with your Certificate of Authenticity.
However, there are just 995 available. If you ask me, that’s not enough to go around!
6. The Justice League Batman Coin Note & Collector’s album
The much anticipated Justice League movie was one of the biggest films of 2017 and the inspiration for New Zealand Mint’s series of coin notes.
At the very heart of Justice League stands the masked vigilante. Uniting the world’s greatest heroes to create a formidable force, Batman™ is brought to life on this spectacular collector’s piece.
For me, this is the perfect addition to your collection and here are 5 reasons why…
- Just 50,000 collections have been issued for release – a remarkably small edition limit when you consider the popularity of Batman™ films, comics and TV shows, and even more so the worldwide fandom for the entire Justice League.
- The note is made out of 5g of fine silver and uses incredible technology to create a note that is just 0.045mm thick – making it paper thin and flexible.
- The Caped Crusader is displayed through a combination of engraving and colour printing. The full colour image creates a stunning design that fits perfectly with this unique silver coin note.
- The obverse features the Queen’s effigy, marking this incredible silver bank note as legal tender.
- It arrives with an exclusive Collector’s album in a protective hardcover that includes details of the note’s authenticity.
