Our celebration of the 60th Anniversary of the original super hero team, the JUSTICE LEAGUE™, continues with Hal Jordan as the GREEN LANTERN™.
Hal was not the first GREEN LANTERN, but he was one of the first members of the JUSTICE LEAGUE. It was 1959 when the GREEN LANTERN character was reinvented as a science fiction hero named Hal Jordan. Hal Jordan's powers were more or less the same as Alan Scott, the original 1940s GREEN LANTERN, but otherwise his character and origin were completely different. Pilot Hal was summoned to the crashed wreckage of a spaceship belonging to an alien named Abin Sur. The dying alien entrusted his ring and duties as the GREEN LANTERN of Earth’s space sector to Hal. As GREEN LANTERN, Hal wore a dark green domino mask to hide his identity and a green, black and white costume with the GREEN LANTERN CORPS™ symbol on his chest.
Hal was always willing to protect those in need—whether alongside the JUSTICE LEAGUE members or with the GREEN LANTERN CORPS. He swore the oath of every GREEN LANTERN—that no evil will escape his sight - “In brightest day, in blackest night, no evil shall escape my sight. Let those who worship evil’s might beware my power…Green Lantern’s light!
Officially licensed by DC Comics, this coin features two images of the determined GREEN LANTERN and his powerful ring, one in colour and one engraved. The design also includes the GREEN LANTERN logo in colour along with a striking GREEN LANTERN CORPS symbol in a mirror finish. It is safely packaged in an acrylic display block, which is housed inside a box showing more GREEN LANTERN imagery.
This release has a limited mintage of only 1,960 coins, to reflect the year that the JUSTICE LEAGUE was formed. A Certificate of Authenticity, with a unique serial number, is placed inside the packaging confirming the significant coin issue date of 2020.
A JUSTICE LEAGUE Collectors Box will be made available to buy at a later date, to showcase all seven coins in the series. So, place your order for this impressive coin today – you have the power!
