New Zealand Mint is currently in the midst of producing two different Star Wars-themed precious metal coin collections. The first of these is the Star Wars Classic collection, which features silver and gold coins depicting famous characters from the original trilogy, such as Yoda and Darth Vader.
In the new Star Wars Force Awakens series, characters from the latest trilogy of sequel films are depicted on the reverse face of the coins. The series started with the franchise’s latest villain, Kylo Ren, and continues in the second release with the 2016 1 oz Silver Niue Star Wars Captain Phasma coin.
On the obverse of the coin is the image of Queen Elizabeth II, captured in right-profile relief by Ian Rank-Broadley. Engravings on this face include “Elizabeth II,” “Niue,” “Two Dollars,” and “2016.
The reverse face of each 2016 1 oz Silver Niue Star Wars Captain Phasma Coin features three images of Captain Phasma, the commander of First Order troopers. Though his armor appears similar to other storm troopers, he stands courtesy of its distinctive metallic finish.
