Star Wars Legal Tender Coins from the New Zealand Mint


The Polynesian paradise, Niue Island, will soon be issuing legal-tender $2 coins honoring a variety of great heroes from a time, long ago, in a galaxy far, far away: characters of the original Star Wars trilogy.  Using the New Zealand Mint, Niue Island will begin issuing the first series of one-ounce, 999-silver Star Wars coins in November of this year in limited quantities of 7,500 coins for each of eight designs.  The Star Wars images are on the back side of the coins, the front side retains an image of the country’s head of state, Her Majesty the Queen, Elizabeth II.
