Star Wars Characters on Currency (Coins)



Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, Yoda and a cast of other heroes and villains from Star Wars, will join the Queen on coins issued by the South Pacific island state of Niue.

A set of 40 coins is being produced by the New Zealand Mint. The coins will have a face value of NZ$2 (New Zealand dollar), but the silver content in each is worth more than that. Sets of four, each containing 1oz of silver, will sell for NZ$469.

The coins are primarily aimed at collectors and investors around the world in a bid to boost Niue's flagging government coffers.

  10. Not the first time I've seen something like this. I've gone to the Canadian mint and found some Harry Potter coins, but never bought them.
