How big is Supergirl right now?
Canada is putting her on money!
Okay, maybe not the day-to-day currency. We are talking about those commemorative coins that I see when flipping by QVC. The Canadian Mint is putting out a bunch of DC hero inspired silver coins. And they might be $10 silver coins, they sell for just under $55 canadian dollars.
But boy, are they beautiful!
Check out this one with Supergirl wearing a Matrix-style costume, hands on hips, beautifully smiling. This is the work of Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez. And the etched background panel is Garcia-Lopez' style guide of the headbanded Supergirl.
It comes in a beautiful box, again adorned with Garcia-Lopez stock art.
And the outside of the box has the theme of 'Strength' (or 'Puissance') . Just a gorgeous box.
There is a second coin as well with a flying Supergirl on the coin. This time the etching is of classic Batgirl and Wonder Girl, a sort of bronze age SBFF's.
Once again the box is lovely. Now we have Supergirl in color with Batgirl behind. Lovely.
Interestingly enough, this box is Batgirl centric with Supergirl and Wonder Girl in the background.
There are others in the series with Superman. I really just want the boxes!
Look at the old school Wonder Girl one! So fantastic.
