The New Zealand Mint is getting a jumpstart on the upcoming release of the next installment in the latest Star Wars trilogy by releasing the first-ever standalone feature film in the franchise’s history, a film which will help connect the dots between the prequel films and the original trilogy. There are two new coins available from the mint that celebrate the 2nd of three movies set in the future after the original trilogy from the 1970s and 1980s.
Rogue One helps connect the storyline between the original films released in the 1970s and 1980s with the prequel films released at the turn of the 21st century. The film features a rogue band of resistance fighters who unite in a daring mission to steal plans for a new Death Star.
The reverse of the 2017 1 oz Silver Niue Star Wars Rogue One Rebellion Proof Coin features a collection of characters from the upcoming film that Star Wars fans have yet to meet on the big screen. In addition to the rebellion logo, you’ll find the colorized design of rebel strike team members that include Jyn Erso, Captain Cassian, K-2S0, Chirrut Imwe, Baze Malbus, and Bodhi Rook.
On the obverse of all Star Wars Rogue One coins is the familiar portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Captured in right-profile relief, this image of the Queen is a fourth-generation effigy that was created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley. This design appears along with engravings of the year of issue, nation of issue, face value, and the Queen’s name.
The 2017 1 oz Silver Niue Star Wars Rogue One Rebellion Proof Coins available here today is a brilliant colorized proof coin. Your individual coin ships inside of a black beauty box with Star Wars-themed design, and arrives packaged in a Star Wars-themed collectible shipper. Each coin includes an individually numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
