The uncertain fate of Han Solo was one of the big surprises that The Empire Strikes Back sprung on Star Wars fans. One of the core trio of Rebellion heroes at the heart of the first trilogy of films, Han would end the film captured by the forces of evil and frozen in a mineral casing called “carbonite.” This shocking twist is commemorated by the New Zealand Mint with the 2022 3 oz Silver Antique Niue Han Solo in Carbonite Coin, now available from Silver.com.

Coin Highlights:

  • Arrives nestled in black velvet in a Star Wars-themed display box!
  • Issued in 2022, one of the NZ Mint’s Star Wars collectibles!
  • Limited mintage of just 5,000 pieces!
  • Consists of Three Troy ounces of .999 Fine Silver.
  • Face value of $10 (NZD) issued by the sovereign state of Niue.
  • Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.
  • Obverse side is a sculpture of Han Solo frozen in carbonite.
  • Reverse side bears an effigy of Queen Elizabeth II.

This 2022 Silver Antique Niue Han Solo in Carbonite Coin is a treasured collectible featuring a beautiful antique finish and an unusual bar-shaped design. Silver.com ships this item fully insured in a themed display box nestled in black velvet, and it comes with a Certificate of Authenticity that specifies its number in the mintage. With three full ounces of pure silver, it’s sure to be in demand from collectors, investors, and dedicated Star Wars fans.

The Empire Strikes Back was a risk-taking entry in the Star Wars franchise when it was released in the early Eighties. It featured memorable and surprising twists such as the ever-famous “I am your father” moment, and the freezing of Han Solo in a slab of carbonite was another plot point that would ring throughout the collective memory of popular culture for decades afterward. The cliffhanger ending to the roguish hero’s tale would have to wait for its resolution in the following film, The Return of the Jedi, where the suspended-animation image of the Millennium Falcon’s captain would again play an iconic role.

A miniature sculpture of a frozen Han Solo forms this coin’s obverse side. It matches the original movie prop that was created using a cast of Harrison Ford’s famous features.

On the reverse side is a legal tender effigy of Queen Elizabeth II, joined by the inscriptions “Elizabeth II,” “Niue,” “Ten Dollars,” and “2022.” At the bottom edge, it carries the verifying inscription “3 oz 999 Fine Silver” and includes the trademark and copyright for Lucasfilm Ltd.
