On we go with our journey through the New Zealand Mint’s land of chibi, with the debut today of the third Star Wars Chibi coin, and the tenth overall in the the three series range. Probably the most popular of the three (the others are DC Comics and Harry Potter), we put that down to the iconic and distinctive characters that take to the chibi style with such ease.
Obviously, R2-D2 is a hugely popular character from the movies, one that has been in almost all of them, so we’re expecting this one to follow Chewbacca aand Darth Vader into a quick sell-out. A one-ounce coin with a 2,000 mintage and a $95.00 USD pricetag, it comes beautifully presented and in a custom capsule. WHile we do get a little tired of writing about these (the release schedule is quite intense), I’m the first to admit this is a quirky and unique coin range that has been realised with great expertise. Dumbledore comes next week. Check out our continually updated guide to the series at the link below.
