Silver Three Ounces 2022 Star Wars - Millennium Falcon, Coin from Niue
CoinSilver Three Ounces 2022 Star Wars - Millennium Falcon

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, or are based on the troy ounce - for example, three ounces of silver (abbreviated as 3 oz Ag, where "Ag" comes from the Latin word for silver, Argentum).

This specially shaped coin is part of New Zealand Mint collection dedicated to characters and themes from the Star Wars series of movies, and features the iconic Millennium Falcon.

The Mint says about it:
This is no hunk of junk! The Corellian freighter, the Millennium Falcon, is shown in stunning detail on this weighty 3oz fine silver shaped coin - a true rarity. The level of detail featured on this coin is stunning - the iconic ship has been brought to life as a work of art created via specialist minting techniques. The coin comes in a round acrylic capsule, which sits snugly in plush velvet inside a sturdy coin case. The Certificate of Authenticity also sits within this case, packaged in a custom-made Star Wars-themed box.

Niue / Silver Three Ounces 2022 Star Wars - Millennium Falcon - 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 FIVE DOLLARS 2022.

Around below, the precious metal value and the copyright acknowledgement: 3 oz 999 Fine Silver © & ™ Lucasfilm Ltd..
