Add the Hulk coin to your burgeoning collection of worthless Marvel currency!

Spider-Man Hulk Conan coins

We’ve seen the Spider-Man and Conan medallion/coins before — sometimes both in the same ad — but the Hulk iteration is a new wrinkle. Shouldn’t they simply have recycled the venerable “Here Comes the Hulk/There Goes the Hulk” shirt design?

I’ve never really investigated the quotes on the reverse of these things, and they aren’t easy to read in this ad, but the Hulk’s is “Within each of us, ofttimes, there dwells a mighty raging fury” — from his first mag. So the very archaic and seldom used “ofttimes” gets some love on a coin. E Pluribus Excelsior!

    It’s funny, as a child I thought the Spiderman coin depicted ol’ Web-Head crawling on a table in a library!!

    The reverse side of the Spider-Man coin is
    “With great power comes great responsibility” Spider-Man first story 1961.
    It looks like my serial no. is 15144.
