Gold Ounce 2023 Star Wars - Return of the Jedi, Coin from Niue
CoinGold Ounce 2023 Star Wars - Return of the Jedi

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 commemorative and collector coins under the authority of Niue. These coins are dedicated to historical or general popular culture themes not related to Niue itself. Many of them are in standard bullion sizes - such as one ounce of gold (abbreviated as 1 oz Au, where "Au" comes from the Latin word for gold, Aurum). Many of these feature famous movie characters.

This coin is part of New Zealand Mint's large collection dedicated to characters and themes from the Star Wars series of movies. It celebrates the 40th Anniversary of the release of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi.

Return of the Jedi is the sixth episode of George Lucas' Star Wars saga and picks up where the plot of The Empire Strikes Back left off. The plot deals with the threat of the second Death Star, the construction of which would destroy the Rebels. The alliance around Han Solo, Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia Organa once again goes into battle against the Empire, and is able to achieve the destruction of the mighty Death Star and finally celebrate the liberation from the Empire's rule.

The obverse of the coin features the official Public Seal of Niue.

It has an inner circle of hiapo designs, representing the fonua (land), within which are stylised designs of a tree, representing life and tagata Niue (the people of Niue), surrounded by an outer circle in the form of a traditional Niuean garland of 14 seashells (representing the 14 villages of Niue), and crowned with St Edward's Crown (of the United Kingdom), representing the sovereign as head of state.

Around above between the two circles, the inscription PUBLIC SEAL OF NIUE. Below, a ribbon carries the motto ATUA NIUE TUKULAGI on two lines (meaning "God, Niue Eternally"), below which two crossed katoua (Niue fighting clubs).

Around above, the face value 250 DOLLARS. Around below, the date of issue 2023.
