Silver Ounce 2020 Darth Vader, Coin from Niue
CoinSilver Ounce 2020 Darth Vader

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 - typically, one ounce of silver (abbreviated as 1 oz Ag, where "Ag" comes from the Latin word for silver, Argentum). Those issued at prices much higher than their bullion value are separately listed in the Non-Circulating Legal Tender (NCLT) silver 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 bullion coin is part of a New Zealand Mint series dedicated to Star Wars characters and features Darth Vader.

Darth Vader was originally known as Anakin Skywalker in the Star Wars franchise and was a Jedi warrior prophesied to bring balance to the Force. However, he became a leading force of disruption and evil when he was turned to the dark side of the force by Palpatine. Like many evil characters though, Vader earns redemption following an encounter with his son, Luke Skywalker.

Obverse
Niue / Silver Ounce 2020 Darth Vader - 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 TWO DOLLARS 2020.
