CoinSilver Ten Ounces 2022 Star Wars - Han Solo in Carbonite

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 - including the very large ten ounces of silver format (abbreviated as 10 oz Ag, where "Ag" comes from the Latin word for silver, Argentum).

This rectangular coin (silver bar) is part of New Zealand Mint collection dedicated to characters and themes from the Star Wars series of movies, and features the iconic scene from Star Wars where Han Solo is frozen in Carbonite.

The Mint says about it:
As seen in the 1980 film, Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, this hefty 10oz pure silver coin has been shaped like a bar and engraved to showcase the frozen intergalactic smuggler. An antique finish has also been applied to further highlight the detail.

Officially licensed, you will find the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on the back side of the coin, which confirms it is legal tender. The worldwide availability is limited to just 1,000 coins!

Each eye-catching coin arrives nestled in black velvet inside a super-size, Star Wars-themed box. The window allows you to display your extraordinary collectible as is! A Certificate of Authenticity is printed on the box along with the serial number of the coin.

Niue / Silver Ten Ounces 2022 Star Wars - Han Solo in Carbonite - 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 small 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 20 DOLLARS 2022.

The effigy and legend are in a small circle in the upper part of the obverse.

On two lines in the lower part of the obverse, the precious metal content and the copyright acknowledgement: 10 oz 999 Fine Silver © & ™ Lucasfilm Ltd. (ten troy ounces of 99.9% silver).
