2018 Stormtrooper Star Wars Coin - One Ounce Silver - Brilliant Uncirculated
Darth Vader can't try to take over the galaxy without the help of an army of Stormtroopers. The second coin in the Niue Star Wars Series features a soldier of the Galactic Empire, known as a Stormtrooper, armed with an E-11 blaster rifle and ready to fight. (Who is he battling? Luke Skywalker? Princess Leia? Hans Solo? We don't know. But perhaps it's a hint that the next issue will be someone from the Light Side versus the Dark Side.)
The newest release from the New Zealand Mint is the $2 One Ounce Stormtrooper Coin. The 2017 Darth Vader Silver Coin was a big hit among Silver Coin enthusiasts and Star Wars Fans alike. This new 2018 issue is sure to be just as popular! Minted with one ounce of .999 fine silver, it is a great addition to any silver bullion stack. The limited mintage of 250,000 will make it highly desirable among collectors of all kinds!
A close up of a Stormtrooper aiming a blaster rifle standing in front of the Imperial Crest is shown on the reverse along with the inscriptions NZM and 1 oz 999 fine silver. This coin is officially licensed by Lucasfilm Ltd. as indicated by the Lucasfilm Ltd. copyright. Though BU, the reverse does have a polished finish. The obverse is the same as the 2017 issue and shows Queen Elizabeth II by Ian Rank-Broadley. Also included are the country, year, and face value amount.
