BRAND NEW – First Silver Coin Note & Complimentary Collectors Album

We can now reveal that New Zealand Mint has expanded its silver coin note range to include Star Wars. The very first coin note in this brand-new Star Wars Silver Coin Note Collection, which comes complete with a six-note collector’s album, features the heroic Luke Skywalker. Future releases will cover all your favourite characters: Obi-Wan Kenobi, Han Solo & Chewbacca, Princess Leia Organa, Darth Vader and R2-D2 & C-3PO.

This initial 5g pure silver coin note features collaged images of Luke Skywalker from the movie along with the movie’s logo and the Rebel Alliance starbird. The combination of engraving and colour printing creates an interesting dimension. The unique number in the mintage is also printed on to the note and it is delivered inside a Star Wars themed protective sleeve.
The hardcover Star Wars: A New Hope Collector’s Album, included with the purchase of this first silver coin note, features a page for each of the six notes in the collection. Each page is designed to complement the corresponding coin note - including a brief summary of the character’s contribution to the film.

The obverse of the note features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and is legal tender in Niue. These notes are therefore a strictly limited edition, so make it your mission to get this first release with the complimentary album here!

And if you are keen to be one of the first to hear about other Star Wars precious metal releases from New Zealand Mint, you can find them on Facebook, Twitter or sign up here to get Star Wars coin news emailed directly to your inbox!
