Star Wars: Rogue One is the second movie in the latest trilogy that takes a look into the Star Wars universe decades after the timing of the original Star Wars Trilogy of films. In Rogue One, a rogue group of Rebellion members set out to steal the Empires plans for a new Death Star.
The reverse of the 2017 1 oz Niue Silver 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, youll 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 Queens name.
The New Zealand Mint is located in Auckland, New Zealand. Though it is the nations only mint, it does not have status as the sovereign mint. All New Zealand dollars and coinage are struck overseas at the Royal Canadian Mint and Royal Mint.
