Silver 1 oz Darth Vader coin minted in 2017 by the New Zealand Mint.
There is no doubt about it: Star Wars is one of the most followed sagas of the cultural industry. Since the first film in 1977, its presence in television spaces, shops and merchandising objects has become constant. The bullion coins were not going to be less: the New Zealand Mint reached an agreement with Disney to be able to create a series of coins of the franchise with the most characteristic characters of this one: Darth Vader, the Stormtrooper, Poe Dameron...
The protagonist of this series is one of the public's favourites: he is Dath Vader, the villain of the first trilogy and whose costume and speech are so characteristic. His design is found on the cross, with his bust facing left with the logo of the empire as a background on the coin.
Anakin Skywalker, the real name of the man behind the suit, appears in a darker shade than the background in one design. To the right of the coin, around the circumference, are the characteristics of the coin: metal, purity, etc. Right next to Vader is the watermark of the New Zealand Mint, with its initials and the four stars of the company logo.
On the cross there is the design of Queen Elizabeth II, with a flat background where her name is found, the place where the coins were minted, their face value (2 dollars) and year of minting and in the centre, the queen's face in which the contrast between the straightness of the crown and the wavy lines of her hair stands out.
The New Zealand Mint Star Wars series is a great opportunity for fans of the saga to start collecting bullion coins and benefit from the goodness of precious metals. With it, you can decorate your home with your favourite characters and also acquire safe haven value - you can complete it at the best price thanks to your trusted coin shop!
The Darth Vader coin was minted in 2017 with silver of 999,99 purity, weighs 31,1035 grams and has a diameter of 40 millimetres.
