The Star Wars: Force Awakens coin series features 1 oz silver, colorized coins that feature a common design motif on the reverse of all products. Each coin represents a different, new character from the feature film with three images on the reverse side. One is in silver, and two are full-color pieces from the film.
On the reverse of the 2016 1 oz Silver Niue Star Wars Poe Dameron Coin you’ll find the silver image of Dameron wearing his X-Wing fighter pilot suit, complete with helmet on. The two colorized images include a right-profile portrait of him with helmet on, and an action shot from the film of him running in his suit with BB-8 close behind.
The obverse of all Silver Niue Star Wars coins features the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley, this image is the fourth-generation depiction of the Queen since she ascended to the throne in 1952.
Each of these 2016 1 oz Silver Niue Star Wars Poe Dameron Coins ships to you in a commemorative case to both protect the coin and make for easy display. The boxes are Star Wars-themed, and ship inside of a Poe Dameron-themed shipper. A numbered Certificate of Authenticity is included with each coin.
