The New Zealand Mint has offered a comprehensive selection of movie poster and comic book cover coins over the last decade, in both traditional, and foil formats, but they're now adding that absolute behemoth of a franchise to their portfolio for the first time - Marvel Comics. Marvel's main competitor, DC Comics, has been a regular at the NZ [...]

The last of the original Star Wars trilogy, Return of the Jedi, is now celebrating its 40th anniversary, and as it did with both 'A New Hope' and 'The Empire Strikes Back', the New Zealand Mint is reissuing its movie poster coin with the anniversary logo. These rectangular coins reproduce the original movie posters, and all nine of [...]

Better late than never, as they say, the December Chibi releases are now in our extensive guide to the series, bringing it up to over 100 issues so far. As well as Emperor Palpatine from Star Wars, and Black Adam from the DC Comics movie, there were a couple of Disney Frozen coins - Elsa and Anna, No [...]

By |2023-01-05T13:39:14+00:00January 5th, 2023|Categories: Quicklooks, Bullion, Movies & TV, Silver, Niue Island, NZ Mint|

It's nice and early in the new year to see the first in what will no doubt be a torrent of bullion designs from the New Zealand Mint, utilising their extensive media franchises. Disney is the first franchise to get a release, and it's one of their holiday/event issues. Mickey Mouse and Minnie are the perpetual couple in [...]

The Mandalorian – Grogu Dinner silver bullion coin (2022 New Zealand Mint)

Want to guarantee a Star Wars coin sells out? Stick Grogu, Baby Yoda as it's erroneously known, on the face. The little, supporting CGI creature was the smash-hit of the massively popular The Mandalorian, Star Wars TV series. This time he's depicted eating a possibly not quite dead, squid-like soup in a comical scene, sure to please fans [...]

Scrooge McDuck silver bullion coin (2022 New Zealand Mint)

By |2022-11-22T15:27:20+00:00November 22nd, 2022|Categories: Quicklooks, Bullion, Movies & TV, Silver, Niue Island, NZ Mint|

Is there are more appropriate subject for a Disney bullion coin than Scrooge McDuck? We don't think so, so the appearance of the mean, rich duck on a silver bullion coin is entirely proper. Celebrating his 75th anniversary, Scrooge McDuck is seen in a typical pose, wearing a top hat, carrying a cane, and dripping with wealth. None [...]

Chibi Data & Reva silver coins (2022 New Zealand Mint)

By |2022-11-09T20:22:31+00:00November 9th, 2022|Categories: Quicklooks, History, Coloured, Movies & TV, Silver, Niue Island, NZ Mint|

It's been a while since we did a Quicklook at new Chibi coins, as you're no doubt interested in more variety, and I find it equally difficult to think of new things to say. However, the series remains popular enough to warrant four new releases every month, and so some coverage is certainly justified. This month is off [...]

Fierce Nature – Tiger silver coin (2022 New Zealand Mint)

By |2022-11-09T12:35:33+00:00November 9th, 2022|Categories: Quicklooks, Nature, Silver, Niue Island, NZ Mint|

One of the New Zealand Mint's rare detours from their countless pop culture ranges, Fierce Nature debuted in July with the Lion, and continues now, with the Tiger. It's a series of two-ounce silver coins, that are shaped portraits of some of nature's most potent beasts, employing high-relief and antique-finishing to fine effect. We like this one even [...]

Catching up with the New Zealand Mint's popular culture coin releases from October An overdue look at the New Zealand Mint's copious popular-culture output is what we have here, and it's another good mix of the many franchises they have in their repertoire. Including such giants as Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, and Harry Potter, [...]

Women in History – Boudicca silver coin (2022 New Zealand Mint)

By |2022-09-23T00:02:11+01:00September 22nd, 2022|Categories: Quicklooks, History, Coloured, People, Silver, Niue Island, NZ Mint|

In a nice change from the tsunami of popular culture coins it produces, the New Zealand Mint debuted a series in May, of one-ounce coloured silver coins, called Women in History. The first of them was a literal giant of the scientific world - the double Nobel Prize winning physicist, Marie Curie. A great first subject, but women's [...]
