As The Empire Strikes Back began, the evil Galactic Empire was hunting the heroic Rebellion. It was on the icy planet of Hoth where the Empire found them, and the action-packed Battle of Hoth began. It was the first time the imposing Imperial Walkers appeared on screen, and a pioneering action sequence in multiple ways.
The 2022 Colorized Niue Silver Star Wars Battle Scene HOTH Coin captures the spirit of this dynamic action in pure silver and with detailed, colorized artwork blending frosted and mirrored finish and high-relief engraving. It comes in a compact themed box nestled in velvet, with a Certificate of Authenticity that identifies each coin’s unique serial number. JM Bullion fully insures each shipment against the possibility of getting lost or damaged en route.
The coin’s obverse side features the profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II familiar from many a Commonwealth country’s circulation coinage, originally designed by Ian Rank-Broadley. It also features the inscriptions “Elizabeth II,” “Niue,” “Ten Dollars,” and “2022.”
On the reverse is a colorized composite scene of various units that participated in the Battle of Hoth, including a Star Destroyer, two types of Imperial Walkers, and a rebel soldier, along with explosions against a backdrop of icy crags. The colorized artwork features a frosted finish, while the backdrop of the sky presents a brilliant mirrored finish. It comes with the inscription “3 oz 999 Fine Silver” and the copyright and trademark of Lucasfilm.
