During World War II, Steve Rogers was offered a place in the military’s top-secret biological experiment, Operation: Rebirth. Rogers was injected with an experimental super-serum and emerged from the treatment with heightened endurance, strength and reaction time. With extensive training and an indestructible Vibranium shield, Rogers soon became the country’s ultimate weapon, Captain America.
Star-spangled Coin Design
The reverse of the coin portrays a comic book illustration of Captain America ready to fight in his patriotic costume and yielding his shield. Also included in the design is the inscription ‘CAPTAIN AMERICA’, a background of stars and stripes reminiscent of the American flag and the Marvel logo.
The coin is housed in a themed card depicting panels from Marvel’s legendary comic books behind a coloured representation of Captain America as he appears on the reverse of the silver coin.
