The ever-expanding Star Wars universe got one of its most popular infusions of fresh energy and ideas in 2016 with the film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Featuring pulse-pounding action, a poignant story, and plenty of new character designs, the film brought a plethora of new baddies from the Galactic Empire to the screen, among them the Imperial combat assault tank pilots whose sleek and sinister helmets form one of the “faces” of the latest commemorative coin from the New Zealand Mint.
The 2022 Niue Silver The Faces of the Empire Hovertank Pilot Shaped Coin ships in a custom-made acrylic protective capsule, contained in a compact Star Wars-themed case with a display window that lets you showcase this pure silver coin in your collection with ease the moment it arrives. Each coin has a unique number in the mintage, displayed on the inside of the case, and JM Bullion fully insures your shipment against damage or loss.
The coin’s reverse side provides a vividly realized portrait of these sinister new enemies of freedom and justice in a faraway sci-fi galaxy. Despite the coin’s unusual shape, it’s still considered legal tender by the issuing nation of Niue.
Featured on the obverse is Ian Rank-Broadley’s famous effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. It also carries the inscriptions “Elizabeth II,” “Niue,” “2021” and “2 Dollars,” as well as the Lucasfilm copyright and the inscription “1 oz 999 Fine Silver.”
