First Appearance of DC Comics' Most Recognisable Hero, Batman, Celebrated on Pure Silver!

We are excited to announce the spectacular new release in our DC Comics pure silver foil collection of sought-after comic book covers. Made from 35g fine silver, this latest release is for the rare Detective Comics #27 from 1939, which featured the first appearance of Batman – making it one of the most valuable comic books of all time.

Containing a six-page story, titled "The Case of the Chemical Syndicate", written by Bill Finger and drawn by Bob Kane, Detective Comics #27 introduced the characters of Batman and Commissioner Gordon, as well as revealed the secret identity of Batman to readers. In this first story, Batman's alter-ego was revealed to be none other than socialite, Bruce Wayne.

Despite being widely circulated on release, the ravages of time have led to a significant reduction of surviving copies of Detective Comics #27. According to the CGC census data, there are only 67 graded copies in existence worldwide, with only 32 copies being in its complete and original form.

Due to its significance in pop culture history, it is widely considered to be one of the most valuable comic books of all time. In fact, in February 2010, a 'Very Fine' copy, which cost 10c in 1939, was sold at auction for US $1,075,500.

This 35g fine silver collectible incorporates both colour and engraving and is presented in a clever acrylic holder, designed to frame the foil and allow for easy display. Packaged inside a complementary themed carrier, this makes the ultimate collectible for any DC Comics, Super hero or Batman fan.

With originals in scarce supply, hurry and place your order for this precious metal replica!
