STAR WARS: CHEWBACCA CHIBI (2020, NZ Mint)
Our weekly dive into the New Zealand Mints super rapid release schedule of Chibi coins in the run up to Christmas, continues. This week it’s the turn of Star Wars to get its second issue. Darth Vader kicked it off and Chewbacca now carries the torch for the tarnished movie franchise.
It’s another cool design, clearly aimed at a specific market. We’re not going to go into detail on these every time a new one drops, so head on over to our full Coin Series Profile of the range for more details. A 2,000 mintage, an ounce of fine silver in weight, and a $95.00 USD pricetag mark this seventh in the series to date. We’ll have to wait two weeks for the next debut – one in the Harry Potter sub-series.

Sold out in 20 minutes at the Mint crazy these are getting harder to get upon release.
Yeah, the Star Wars stuff in particular seems to fly out. I get the feeling that Chibi will be back next year…
Chewbacca has definitely been selling like crazy. The R2 Chibi unfortunately sold out within a few hours on our website, but we still have a few Chewie Chibis available!
