New Zealand Mint’s first Ultra High Relief 2oz silver coin for 2018 is the wise and powerful Jedi Master Yoda. With only 5,000 available worldwide, half the mintage of their sold out Yoda 1oz silver coin, you will want to place your order today!

With his charming backwards speak, expressive eyes and ears, and playfulness, Yoda has gone on to become an international icon -- possibly even one of the most recognized movie characters of all time.

When Luke Skywalker arrives on Dagobah, Yoda shows us his comic side as he tests Luke to see what kind of person he is. But once Yoda begins to train him in the ways of the Force the comedy evaporates and his lessons are challenging and full of wisdom. After Luke tries to levitate his X-wing from the Dagobah swamp — and fails — he tells his Master, “You want the impossible.” With that, Yoda calmly raises the starfighter. “I can’t believe it,” says Luke. “That is why you fail,” Yoda replies. It’s a simple yet spellbinding moment that serves to reinforce everything Yoda had been trying to convey to his student.

Like the two Ultra High Relief coins before it, Darth Vader and Han Solo, this Yoda Ultra High Relief 2oz Silver Coin comes in a Star Wars branded coin case. Inside the coin is nestled in black velvet and angled to display the 3D aesthetic -- which is achieved through the Ultra High Relief minting process. The serialised Certificate of Authenticity also sits within the coin case. Kept within a Star Wars themed outer box, it makes a great keepsake for any Yoda fan or Star Wars collector.

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!
