Time for the first batch of Chibi coins for June and perennial Star Wars favourite Obi Wan Kenobi undoubtedly takes pride of place. The Star Wars sub-series has easily been the best selling to date, so its no surprise to find out this one is already pretty unobtainable. If you can pick one up, its bound to be [...]

By |2021-06-01T17:11:24+01:00June 1st, 2021|Categories: Quicklooks, Coloured, Movies & TV, Silver, Niue Island, The Coin Company|

One of the greatest animated creations of all time, in my view, The Minions, a group of seemingly immortal 'henchmen' for the most evil person on the planet, have starred in multiple smash-hit movies over the last decade or so. Bright yellow, short and with a distinctive language all of their own, their misadventures have proven hugely [...]

The merchandising hit of 2020 , The Child from The Mandalorian, launches as a perfect silver miniature statue We've been extremely impressed with the New Zealand Mint's silver miniatures over the last few years. They've issued some superb pieces in the Disney, Star Trek and Star Wars franchises, and now they've added smash-hit TV show 'The [...]

WONDER WOMAN 1984 & MINNIE MOUSE CHIBI (2021 NZ Mint)

By |2021-05-25T01:40:13+01:00May 25th, 2021|Categories: Quicklooks, Coloured, Movies & TV, Silver, NZ Mint, Niue Island|

More Chibi coins today and the late May pair extends the fledgling Disney sub-series, 'Mickey & Friends' with a second issue, Minnie. The more interesting of the pair is the debut of yet another new series, and one we're not sure warrants it. Wonder Woman 84 seems quite a niche subject for a seperate series. We'd have [...]

THE MANDALORIAN: THE CHILD (2021 NZ Mint)

The Mandalorian coloured silver coin series from the New Zealand Mint seems to have been a good seller, no surprise given the huge popularity of the TV series. The star of the show to date is without question 'The Child', also known as Grogu, or Baby Yoda (which it isn't), so it's a surprise that we're four coins [...]

 Chibi is back like clockwork with the first pair of May issues now available to pre-order, The first is of little surprise, Gandalf the Grey the latest in the Lord of the Rings sub-set.
