The New Zealand Mint’s long-running Face of Gotham collection features shaped coins that rank among the most colorful and popular collectibles of their kind to be found anywhere, celebrating vivid characters that surround one of the world’s most iconic and long-lived superheroes. Precious pure silver comes together with engaging design and attention to detail to create sought-after pieces among investors, collectors, and fans: such as the 2022 Niue Faces of Gotham Riddler Shaped 1 oz Silver Coin currently available from Provident Metals.
The 2022 Niue Faces of Gotham Riddler Shaped Silver Coin 2022 is a tribute to one of the longest-running members of Batman’s rogues’ gallery, the fiendishly clever and arrogant Riddler. It showcases his classic comic book look in brilliant color with fine sculpting and added light relief. It comes in a themed box with a display window, ready to be shown in your collection, along with a Certificate of Authenticity that specifies your coin’s unique position in the limited mintage.
Ian Rank-Broadley’s effigy of Elizabeth II, designed in 1998, dominates the coin’s obverse side to confirm it as legal tender of Niue Island. It’s surrounded by inscriptions of her name and the coin’s face value and country of issue, along with confirmation of its silver content and the trademark and copyright of DC Comics.
The Riddler is one of the most iconic of Batman’s stubborn and dangerous foes, familiar to most with the classic look we see on the coin’s reverse side featuring his question-mark bowler hat, purple domino mask, and self-satisfied grin. Additional light relief brings out the details of the artwork even more vividly.
Many of Batman’s foes were built around a core idea or obsession. In the case of Edward Nigma — The Riddler — that obsession was with intellectual vanity. No matter what particular crimes he was committing, he was (and is) always on a mission to prove himself cleverer than anyone else, especially the police andmostespecially Batman. He has taken on a number of forms and roles and looks over the years, but the character design appearing on this coin remains the most famous.
