R2-D2 is the latest character to be featured on New Zealand Mint’s Star Wars Classic coin collection. These fine gold and silver licensed collectible coins show R2-D2 being sold by the Jawas to Luke Skywalker and his step-uncle Owen Lars in Star Wars: A New Hope. The coins come presented in a Star Wars branded and stylized coin packaging, making them ideal gifts for fans.

NZ Mint is thrilled to say this coin collection has been really well received; but don’t take their word for it, here’s what some of their customers have to say about other coins in the collection:

THOMAS – USA, 24 May 2016
This Gold Star Wars Classic Darth Vader Coin…I would Highly Recommend this coin and the entire Star Wars Classic Collection!

TYLER - FL United States, 11 December 2015
Received coin yesterday here in the States (fast shipping). I am VERY happy with it. The coin looks very clean/sharp. It goes along great with the Darth Vader coin before it and I look forward to what comes next!

R2-D2
A resourceful astromech Droid, R2-D2 served Padmé Amidala, Anakin Skywalker and Luke Skywalker in turn, showing great bravery in rescuing his masters and their friends from many perils. A skilled starship mechanic and fighter pilot's assistant, he formed an unlikely but enduring friendship with the fussy protocol Droid C-3PO.

With a limited worldwide mintage of only 10,000 of each coin, don't delay and start, or add, to your collection today.
