1 oz. Millennium Falcon silver coin, minted in 2021 by New Zealand Mint.
If there is one science fiction film franchise known around the world, it is Star Wars. The story devised by George Lucas has since the 1980s provided us with films and television series that have triumphed around the world.
The first trilogy provided the saga with some of the most enigmatic characters in history. Two of them are Han Solo and Chewbacca, who, mounted on their ship the Millennium Falcon, travelled the galaxy as bounty hunters. It is precisely the ship that is the main protagonist of the coin.
It appears on the cross of the coin. Near the edge are two lines that border the coin, joined by a thick line. Almost the entire centre of the coin is occupied by the ship in bas-relief, with its wings, its technological mechanisms and all its openings and hatches in great detail. In the background, the symbol of the Intergalactic Republic and below the ship, that of the New Zealand Mint.
On the face we see the face of Queen Elizabeth II with Ian Rank-Broadley's design, which features a simple crown with square motifs without decorative excesses and a very faithful representation of the curls of the monarch's hair, with circular motifs. The background of this part is empty and, on it, we find the name of the Queen, the country where it is minted, the year and the face value of the bullion (2 dollars).
The Millennium Falcon silver coin is minted with 1 ounce of 99,999% purity, has a diameter of 40,00 millimetres and a thickness of 2,97.
