CoinSilver Kilo 2021 Star Wars - Death Star

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, bullion 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 based on the troy ounce, but some are in the metric system and go to the large size of one kilogram (1 kg) of silver.

The coins are "Non-Circulating Legal Tender" (NCLT) and not bullion because they are issued at prices much higher than their bullion value and are targeted at collectors who appreciate them for their artistic or sentimental value, and not at bullion investors.

The Mint says about this coin:
"The Empire’s ultimate weapon, the Death Star™, is recreated in a weighty 1kg pure silver as a limited-edition 3D coin with an antique finish.

With a mintage of only 299 coins worldwide for this amazing memento, get one and you’ll be the envy of all your friends. This unique collectible is encased in black velvet inside a specially designed coin case which is then packaged inside a Star Wars™ themed outer box.

A Certificate of Authenticity is provided, which bears the exclusive serial number for the coin. This one-of-a-kind coin has been produced to a very high standard, ensuring the design is faithfully recreated. Each coin arrives with an additional acrylic display case and a pair of white gloves to allow you to handle and proudly display this precious piece - we know you will want to!"

Obverse
Niue / Silver Kilo 2021 Star Wars - Death Star - 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 100 DOLLARS 2021.

There are no "sides" since the product is a sphere; the "obverse" is at the lower end of the sphere.
