Gold Ounce 2021 Millennium Falcon, Coin from Niue
CoinGold Ounce 2021 Millennium Falcon

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 bullion series dedicated to Star Wars characters and themes, and features the Millennium Falcon

The legendary Millennium Falcon was a heavily modified YT-1300 light freighter flown by Han Solo and his co-pilot Chewbacca for the Rebel Alliance. The ship's somewhat run-down appearance is deceiving: hidden inside the Millennium Falcon was high-tech equipment that proved itself in several battles during the Rebellion. The Millennium Falcon also made a successful contribution to the destruction of the first and second Death Star.

Obverse
Niue / Gold Ounce 2021 Millennium Falcon - obverse photo

The obverse of the coin shows the crowned mature head of Queen Elizabeth II facing right (her effigy known as the "Fourth Portrait"). The Queen wears the "Girls of Great Britain and Ireland" diamond tiara, a wedding gift from Queen Mary (Her Majesty's grandmother) in 1947 - which she also has on the Machin and the Gottwald portraits.

In tiny letters below the head, the artist's initials IRB (for Ian Rank-Broadley).

Around the effigy is the monarch's legend, the date of issue and the value: ELIZABETH II NIUE 250 DOLLARS 2021.
