The Jedi Master named Yoda has done a great deal to shape the Star Wars universe ever since he was first introduced as a guru for the heroic Luke Skywalker in the early Eighties. With a mystique built from multiple iconic moments and lines in The Empire Strikes Back, he went on to become one of the most popular characters in the entire franchise. Just how popular can be seen in how rapidly the 2022 1 oz Silver Niue Chibi Yoda Shaped Coin sold out when it first went on sale at the mint. Luckily, it’s still available to you from Silver.com.

The diminutive Jedi Master commemorated by the 2022 Silver Niue Chibi Yoda Shaped Coin is a perfect subject for the Japanese-originated Chibi (“little”) style of a caricature. Silver.com ships this coin fully insured and display-ready in a themed box with a large window and its own protective acrylic case. It comes with a Certificate of Authenticity that identifies its unique number in the mintage and is verified as legal tender of Niue.
Despite his tiny size, Yoda was larger than life from his first moment onscreen in the very first sequel to Star Wars to hit theaters. His wisdom, humor, and astonishing Force powers made him an instant hit with kids and even captured the imaginations of adults, and he has continued doing so ever since as more and more films and shows give us pieces of his story and reveal his contributions to the universe. It’s little wonder that a pure silver coin commemorating his legacy is such a coveted item.
The coin’s obverse side features a profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II designed by Ian Rank-Broadley, along with the inscriptions “ELIZABETH II,” “NIUE,” “2022” and “2 DOLLARS.” It specifies silver content as “1 oz 999 Fine Silver” and bears Lucasfilm’s trademark and copyright.
The reverse side is comprised of a shaped and vividly colorized sculpture of the venerable Jedi Master. He wears a serene smile and simple brown Jedi robes.
