The Phantom, sworn to the destruction of piracy, greed, cruelty and injustice, was created by Lee Falk in 1936. A seemingly immortal being that has been around since 1536, he is in fact the 21th member of a crime-fighting dynasty who all adopt the same costumed-persona.
Featured in The Phantom, the most widely-read superhero comic in the world, the anti-crime crusader has also been portrayed in other forms of media, including television, film, and video games.
Struck from 1oz of pure silver in proof quality, this 80th anniversary medallion portrays a coloured image of the Phantom in action in his jungle home of Bengalla. The design on the back includes a struck portrait of the Phantom and the ‘phantasy’ monetary denomination of 100 Bengalla Dollars.
The medallion is presented in a replica of the Phantom’s hideout – Skull Cave. A stunning display, the skull features a throne that slides out of its mouth to reveal the coin while at the same time illuminating its green eyes!
No more than 3,000 of these anniversary medallions will be released.
