It was in 2016 that the New Zealand Mint announced it had obtained the licence to produce coins based on the Star Wars film universe. It had already been issuing coins for Disney, and Disney’s acquisition of Lucasfilm meant it was only a small step from there to Star Wars. As a universe rich with characters and worlds, there are plenty of subjects for coins, and the mint has taken full advantage of that.
The offerings cover proof coins in gold and silver, bullion coins in the same metals, and a newer range of ultra-thin, but ultra-large silver foils. There’s pretty much something for every budget, ranging from $39.00 USD right up to $2,500. Many of these ranges are still in progress, and new ones are added constantly.
Spread over three pages, you can see all that is available to date, and we will keep it updated as new issues appear. The first page concentrates on the traditional style of coins (our favourite), with page two covering coloured issues, and page three the silver foils. Also, the banner ad below takes you direct to the mint’s own store, and we get a small kickback at no cost to you, so please give it a click if you’re thinking of splashing out.
