Star Wars The Force Awakens. NZ Mint rounds out six-coin set with final three
The big Star Wars reveal continues today with the launch of the last three coins in the six-coin Star Wars VII: A Force Awakens set. There are no format or design surprises here as you would expect. Like the first three coins they follow a staple format for the New Zealand Mint, 1 oz coloured silver coins issued for Niue.
In contrast to the more traditional Star Wars Classic coins, all Force Awakens coins are shipped in the newly slimmed down acrylic frames that we’re big fans off here. They’re around a third lighter than the first frames without compromising the look or quality. They make great display cases and fans will appreciate being able to place the protcted coins in amongst their other items without fear of damage.
The first three coins depicted Kylo Ren, Captain Phasma, and Rey. This second trilogy depicts the other major new characters to debut in the Star Wars Universe, Poe Dameron, Finn, and the new huge hit, BB-8. The design continues that from the first three, and while they don’t push any numismatic boundaries, they are very well done. The coloured montage of scenes in the background looks great and helps to highlight the clean-struck character image in the foreground. We think fans will love them. Each is limited to 10,000 pieces and will sell for $85.00 US. The mint will have them in their own estore later today, although quite a few dealers stock these as well, including most of our sponsors.
REVERSE: Depicts a coloured montage of the character in action, behind a clean struck image of the character. The Star Wars logo is also inscribed.
OBVERSE: This features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
PACKAGING: The Star Wars: The Force Awakens 1 oz Silver Coins each come presented in a high-quality, new slimline Perspex coin case (appr. 30% lighter than our previous Perspex case) and Star Wars-themed outer coin packaging. The packaging makes these an ideal gift for any Star Wars fan. The Certificates of Authenticity sit within each coin case.
