Silver Ounce 2023 Grogu (Baby Yoda), Coin from Niue
CoinSilver Ounce 2023 Grogu (Baby Yoda)

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 premium bullion coin struck from one ounce of 99.9% silver is part of a New Zealand Mint series dedicated to characters and themes from famous movies, and is the second bullion issue featuring Grogu (also known as The Child, or Baby Yoda) from the Star Wars universe.

Grogu was a force-sensitive child and belonged to the same species as Jedi Grandmaster Yoda. Born around 41 VSY, he grew up in the Jedi Temple on Coruscant, being taught by various masters. Then, at the age of about fifty, he met the Mandalorian bounty hunter, who was supposed to track it down for a dubious client, but then decided to take Grogu back from the client and protect it.

Obverse

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 TWO DOLLARS. Around below, the date of issue 2023.
