In the early 1970’s Marvel produced, through Hallmark Mint, this Bronze ‘Collectors Coin’ (3.7 cm diameter), of Spider-man. I don’t recall how many of each were minted, but believe they were limited editions because each one was given its own individual serial number stamped on the edge. The serial number for this Spider-Man coin is 3592.

I also have another one numbered 11727, which is exactly the same but a bit later, as I swapped it for a few Superman comics that I had 2nd copies of. This was how we grew our stamp, card, comic and key collections when we were kids.

You had to apply through the comic for one of these coins and as I was a Spiderman freak, I was fairly quick off the mark and got one of the earlier ones. They are a very rare item now – I have owned this original one for over 40 years. At the time of writing this advert there are several on Ebay averaging £100 each. There is currently one at £70 & £31 P&P. This has had only one owner for the past 40 odd years – me!

One side is an image of Spidey crawling a wall, with the words ‘Your Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man’. The other has a split Peter/Spidey face in the web with the immortal words “With great power comes great responsibility”.
