Darth Vader wraps up the Star Wars: A New Hope coin note series

The New Zealand Mints, Star Wars A New Hope coin note series completes today with the launch of the movies big bad, Darth Vader. No changes to the design or spec, as you’d expect, and this one slots into the album that came with the debut Luke Skywalker coin along with the other five notes.

Available now for $39.00 USD, it has a 50,000 mintage. You can find out more about the series in our Coin Series Profile and see what other choices there are in the fledgling format on our Metal Banknote page. Several of our sponsors sell these so feel free to click away if you want to buy. Fans of Star Wars notes may want to take a look at the premium movie poster issue, which is a giant-sized variant, although as it carries no denomination is not technically a coin-note.
