The New Zealand Mint is set to offer a very special new set of coins featuring the likes of some of your favorite characters from George Lucas‘s classic Star Wars series.
The first series includes eight 1oz 999 silver coins in two separate sets. The first comes in a Darth Vader helmet case (that even makes the iconic villain’s breathing sound when you open it), and features Vader, Emperor Palpatine, a Stormtrooper, and the Death Star. The second comes in a Millennium Falcon case (which makes the “jump to light speed” sound when opened), and features the dynamic duos of Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda, R2-D2 and C-3PO, and Han Solo and Chewbacca.
The coins are legal tender, only worth $2 in New Zeland’s denomination, but the silver content is worth much more, meaning each set would run you a hefty $391 US Dollars, or Â£238 GBP, â‚¬270 EUR, $469 NZD, and $371 AUD.
If that’s too rich for you, you can also buy coins individually for around $20 USD (Â£12 GBP, â‚¬13.56 EUR, $23.50 NZD, $18.64 AUD).
The coins are all now available for pre–order, and you can find all the information you need at the New Zealand Mint website.
