TORONTO - Superman has received the Canadian royal treatment.

The Royal Canadian Mint unveiled seven coins Monday, each depicting different moments in the superhero's history.

The event — which took place in the downtown Toronto area — marked the character's 75th anniversary.

The coins also feature an engraved message reading "75 years of Superman" in the character's native language, Kryptonian.

One of the coins depicts Superman flying above Metropolis with the famous Fortress of Solitude in the background.

The 14-karat gold coin sells for $750 and is supposed to be like the original design of Superman's Canadian co-creator, Joe Shuster.

The other six coins have a price range from $29.75 to $129.75.

The designs include a 3-D hologram of Superman flying and an almost pure silver coin of Superman in his latest uniform.
