SOLD OUT!Today New Zealand Mint announced the launch of the next poster coin from the final instalment of the original Star Wars trilogy - Return of Jedi - released in May 1983. The movie wrapped up all the story threads previously set in motion — Luke’s journey to become a Jedi, the Rebellion’s struggle against the Empire, and the redemption of Darth Vader — and did so amidst a backdrop of stunning visuals, thrilling action, and lots of strange creatures. Commercially, it was a monster success, breaking single day and opening weekend records with ease and catapulting the film swiftly up the all-time charts.
Officially licensed by Disney, this 1oz fine silver collectible coin features a replica image of the original poster for the movie. The striking design incorporates both colour and engraving. The previous Star Wars poster coins sold out – so with a limited mintage of only 10,000 coins worldwide, don’t miss out on this one!
UPDATE: Proving that these collectible coins from New Zealand Mint are hot property, all 5000 sold out over the weekend!
The coin comes presented in a clever perspex holder, designed to frame the coin and allow for easy display. The Certificate of Authenticity sits within the packaging and both are Star Wars branded to complement the coin – making this a must-have for any Star Wars fan.
