Superheroes on coins also light up

Early October saw Fiji release three 50-cent pieces celebrating Marvel’s superheroes: Captain America, Iron Man and Spider-Man.

Each superhero is selectively colored on the reverse of each 50 mm, 56.29 silver-plated clad coin. Mintage is 50,000.

When the obverse side of a coin is pressed, part of each hero lights up.

The obverse of each shows the arms of Fiji and is denominated as HALF DOLLAR.

The coins are presently available online from ModernCoinMart: www.ModernCoinMart.com/LightUp.
