Exciting Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice Coin Series adds to the variety of coin themes offered by the Mint

In launching its third numismatic catalogue of 2016, the Royal Canadian Mint has once again launched an exciting variety of collector coins which celebrate Canadian identity: from our love of pop culture, to our legendary natural resources. All of these collectibles are available as of March 1, 2016.
