CoinSilver Ounce 2021 Chibi - The Mandalorian

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 - typically, one ounce of silver (abbreviated as 1 oz Ag, where "Ag" comes from the Latin word for silver, Argentum). Many of these feature movie characters. Some are also in innovative shapes, such as "Chibi".

Chibi (ちび or チビ) is a Japanese slang word describing something short (a thing, an animal or a person). The term is widely used to describe a specific style of caricature where characters are drawn in an exaggerated way: small and chubby, with stubby limbs and oversized heads. Coins of this type look like cartoon characters and have their corresponding shape; they are also very thick for their size.

This coin features The Mandalorian, the main character from the Mandalorian films which are part of the Star Wars movie franchise.

The Mint says about it:
The Mandalorian Chibi Coin Series has expanded to include a coin for the warrior Din Djarin, otherwise known as the Mandalorian! Licensed by Lucasfilm Ltd, this 1oz of pure silver has been shaped and coloured to represent the formidable bounty hunter in the Chibi art style. Dressed in beskar armor, his face hidden behind a T-visored mask, you can see a peep of his phase-pulse Amban sniper rifle and cape behind him.

The Ian Rank Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is found on the obverse to confirm it as a legal tender coin. The box features imagery from The Mandalorian and a large window to allow for easy display.

Obverse
Niue / Silver Ounce 2021 Chibi - The Mandalorian - obverse photo

The obverse of the coin shows at its centre 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).

Above the effigy is the monarch's legend, on two lines separated by a horizontal line: ELIZABETH II NIUE. Below the effigy, also on two lines separated by a horizontal line, the date of issue and the face value: 2021 2 DOLLARS.

In the lower part, the precious metal content: 1 oz 999 Fine Silver (one ounce of 99.9% silver), below which the copyright and trade mark acknowledgement: © & TM Lucasfilm Ltd.
