The Star Wars film franchise never seems to go out of style. Over the past 40 years it has entertained millions around the world, and now the characters from the science-fiction universe are coming to life on silver coins from the New Zealand Mint. Each 2021 1 oz. Niue Silver Star Wars Millennium Falcon Coin in this listing is in BU condition.
The design shows the beloved starship as it soars through space with a background element that includes the logo of the Rebel Alliance. The Millennium Falcon was popularly captained in the franchise by Han Solo, though it was also previously captained by Lando Calrissian. The Millennium Falcon appeared in all three films in the original trilogy series, all three films in the sequel trilogy, the standalone film Solo: A Star Wars Story, and even made a brief appearance in the final film of the prequel trilogy in 2005. And for the First Time ever, the entire coin has been layered entirely with Genuine BLACK RUTHENIUM and 24K Gold Highlights by the Merrick Mint!
This iconic ship is shown on the reverse along with the inscriptions NZM and 1 oz 999 fine silver. On the obverse of the coins you’ll find the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty features on the obverse of all commonwealth coinage, with this particular design coming from Ian Rank-Broadley in 1998 as the fourth-generation depiction of the Queen.
