CoinSilver Two Ounces 2019 Star Wars - Darth Vader Helmet

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 - for example, two ounces of silver (abbreviated as 2 oz Ag, where "Ag" comes from the Latin word for silver, Argentum).

This coin is part of New Zealand Mint collection dedicated to characters and themes from the Star Wars series of movies, and features the iconic black helmet of Darth Vader.

Darth Vader™ (Anakin Skywalker) is one of the main characters in Star Wars. As a young Anakin Skywalker he was originally the student of the Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi, who trained Anakin to become a Jedi Knight. Later, he was attracted to the dark side of the Force and became the Sith Lord Darth Vader™ and servant of the Emperor. In a fire he got bad burns and almost died until Darth Sidious found him. In the course of a life-saving operation he was put on a black armor, including the iconic black mask with the unmistakable breathing sounds.

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 FIVE DOLLARS 2019.
