Very much at the niche end of the New Zealand Mints copious Star Wars coin output, ‘Star Wars Ships’ is a series of 1 oz gold issues that, like the title suggests, feature the various legendary vessels from the Star Wars franchise. By its very nature, coins for this movie behemoth would have more appeal at the lower end, so it’s rare to see an expensive offering like these.
The Tie Advanced, Darth Vader’s ship, is the subject of this sixth issue to date and sticks firmly to the previously defined visual style. A clean depiction of the ship against an equally clean background field is used again. No design envelopes being pushed here, but a solid enough effort regardless. These are a little too expensive to embrace gimmickry, we think.
Not only the sixth issue, it’s also the last. The mintage of 50 pieces remains as tight as ever, and the packaging is of a high quality you would expect from the NZ Mint. So, a neat enough coin for the classicist with deep pockets (circa €3k). An EMK exclusive, US buyers can also pick up one up from APMEX. Available now.
