The Marvel film Spider-Man: Homecoming is set to be one of
2017’s biggest movies.
ModernCoinMart and GovMint.com have partnered with former United
States Mint Chief Engraver John Mercanti to celebrate the movie with
three new precious metal collector coins.
A Proof 1-ounce .999 fine silver $5 coin, Proof 5-ounce .999 fine
silver $25 coin and Proof 1-ounce .9999 fine gold $200 coin feature
Mercanti’s common reverse design.
His initials can be found in the lower portion of the design.
Spider-Man is shown swinging forward and the background is filled with
a large web. This side is inscribed with the metal content, Marvel
copyright, and the name of the movie. The date and face value are also
inscribed on the reverse.
