One of the most famous battle scenes ever to appear in a space opera movie was the Battle of Hoth, pitting the forces of good against an overwhelming onslaught of evil on a remote, bleak, and wintry planet. It was one of the most memorable sequences in a film that was famously packed with them, and a fitting subject for commemoration as part of the New Zealand Mint’s Star Wars Battle Scenes series.

Hoth was the setting for the first act of The Empire Strikes Back, its bleak and wintry landscape the backdrop to a desperate struggle for survival by the Rebellion against the might of the Galactic Empire. When the Empire discovered the rebels’ icy hideout, the result was the Battle of Hoth, one of the famous battle scenes not just in Star Wars but in all of science-fiction cinema.
The coin’s reverse side is designed to evoke that iconic battle scene’s dynamism, impact, and suspense, featuring colorized artwork of various units — a Star Destroyer, AT-AT, and AT-ST Walkers, and a Rebel soldier — and explosions against the icy crags in the background, all of it rendered with a frosted finish with a brilliant mirror-finish sky above. It’s all accompanied by the inscription “3 oz 999 Fine Silver” and the copyright and trademark of Lucasfilm.
The obverse side features a legal tender effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. It’s joined by the inscriptions “Elizabeth II,” “Niue,” “Ten Dollars,” and “2022.”
