Gold Ounce 2021 Star Wars - Galactic Empire, Coin from Niue
CoinGold Ounce 2021 Star Wars - Galactic Empire

Niue, a sovereign state in free association with New Zealand, uses two official legal tender currencies. The New Zealand Dollar is the circulation currency for daily transactions, while the government also authorises legal tender coins in the Niue Dollar currency for collector's purposes.

A number of mints issue a large variety of coins under the authority of Niue. Most of these are commemorative and collector issues dedicated to historical or general popular culture themes not related to Niue itself. Many of them are in standard bullion sizes, including one ounce of gold (abbreviated as 1 oz Au, where "Au" comes from the Latin word for gold, Aurum). Those issued at prices much higher than their bullion value are separately listed in the Non-Circulating Legal Tender (NCLT) gold ounce section of the site.

Unlike them, this coin is targeted at bullion investors and was initially released at a price close to the value of its precious metal content.

This coin is part of a New Zealand Mint series dedicated to characters and themes from famous movies, and features the logo of the Galactic Empire from the Star Wars universe.

When Supreme Chancellor and Sith Lord Palpatine proclaimed the first Galactic Empire, he reshaped the old Galactic Republic logo from an 8-spoke wheel to the 6-spoke symbol. It was meant to represent the most feared and powerful empire the galaxy had ever seen. The similarities and differences to the old symbol were intended to simultaneously create acceptance and necessary trust for a clear transition to the new order. The Galactic Imperial Crest appeared on flags, starships, administrative buildings and on currency.

Niue / Gold Ounce 2021 Star Wars - Galactic Empire - obverse photo

The obverse features the "Public Seal of Niue" (it has to be noted that this is not the official seal...)

It has what looks like a plant arrangement at centre, within a double ornamental circle, itself surrounded by a circle of sea shells. This is crowned with St Edward's Crown (of the United Kingdom). Around above between the two, the inscription PUBLIC SEAL OF NIUE.

Below that, a ribbon carries the motto ATUA NIUE TUKULAGI on two lines, below which two crossed katoua (Niue fighting clubs).

Around above, the face value 250 DOLLARS. Around below, the date of issue 2021.
