    Buying Silver Star Wars Coins from JM Bullion

    Star Trek may have a rising profile in the world of precious metal coins, but when it comes to the world of science-fiction there is no franchise more popular than Star Wars. Created in the late 1970s by George Lucas, the franchise has blossomed from its original three-film release into a collection of nine major motion pictures across five decades of history.

    The original Star Wars three-film release set the stage for the franchise in the late 1970s and early-to-mid 1980s. That was followed up by a prequel trilogy of films released at the turn of the 21st century, and now returns to theaters to grab the attention of an entirely new generation of people with a new trilogy series following the aftermath of the original films.

    An entire series of Silver Star Wars coins are currently available from the New Zealand Mint, issued for the tiny island nation of Niue, and feature stunning colorized proof finishes with limited mintages. Explore a galaxy far, far away in the following paragraphs as we dive into the beauty of the Silver Star Wars coins available today from JM Bullion.

    Star Wars: The Force Awakens Series

    Fans young and old crammed theaters at the end of 2015 to see the release of the first film in the highly-anticipated new Star Wars trilogy. Set in the future beyond the timeline of the original three Star Wars films from the 1970s and 1980s, the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens dominated global box office news and ticket sales for weeks.

    The New Zealand Mint is currently in the midst of producing two separate coin series to take advantage of the popularity of the film franchise at the moment. Among these is the Star Wars: The Force Awakens Series. The program features colorized images of popular new characters in the franchise that appeared in The Force Awakens. Each of the six releases in this collection include common details of the release and a shared obverse design:

    • Limited mintage of just 10,000 coins in total!
    • Arrives in a protective presentation case.
    • Includes a Certificate of Authenticity.
    • Contains 1 Troy oz of .999 pure silver.
    • Bears a face value of $2 (NZD) and is legal tender in Niue.
    • Each coin in the series shares a common obverse design, that of Queen Elizabeth II’s right-profile portrait. Designed in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley, this represents a fourth-generation of Her Majesty as the Queen of England.

    All of the coins from the Star Wars: The Force Awakens collection have a colorized proof design on the reverse that features three different images of the represented character. The six design releases in total are described in detail below, in order of release from first to sixth:

    • 2016 Kylo Ren Coin (1st Release): On the reverse face of each 2016 1 oz Niue Silver Star Wars Kylo Ren Coin are multiple images of Kylo Ren, pulled directly from the feature film. The colorized background shows Kylo with his fearsome lightsaber as he leads a group of storm troopers. Above this is a side-profile image of Kylo that is also colorized, while the foreground features a silver image of Kylo Ren.
    • 2016 Captain Phasma Coin (2nd Release): The reverse side of the 2016 1 oz Niue Silver Star Wars Captain Phasma coin brings his character to life with three images. He is featured in colorized designs that include his distinctive metallic armor as he leads the legions of storm troopers for the First Order.
    • 2016 Rey Coin (3rd Release): On the reverse of the 2016 1 oz Niue Silver Star Wars Rey Coin are three images of Rey from the feature film. In the only silver image, we see her cloaked in protective gear to cover against sand as she speeds across the desert landscape. The two colorized images show a close-up image of Rey and a full-length shot of her character with the Jakku sky in the background.
    • 2016 BB-8 Coin (4th Release): On the reverse of all 2016 1 oz Niue Silver Star Wars BB-8 Coin you’ll find three images of the lovable droid. One is captured in brilliant .999 pure silver, while the background images are colorized. In one background image, we see only BB-8, but the other shows him near the end of the film when he encounters C3PO and R2D2 as the story begins to weave together with the past in this iconic franchise.
    • 2016 Finn Coin (5th Release): The reverse of the 2016 1 oz Niue Silver Star Wars Finn Coin depicts this main character in the same manner as others in the Force Awakens Series. Three total images of Finn appear on the surface, with one close-up in silver and the background field entirely colorized. Another close-up of Finn is featured in the colorized background, along with an action shot from the film.
    • 2016 Poe Dameron Coin (6th Release): Poe Dameron appears on the reverse of each 2016 1 oz Niue Silver Star Wars Poe Dameron coin with three images in total. In one he is featured in his X-Wing fighter pilot suit in pure silver, while another close-up right-profile portrait captures him in his suit in full color. The background is entirely colorized as well, with an action shot from the feature film.

    Star Wars: Rogue One Series

    Following the late 2015 release of The Force Awakens in theaters, fans are gearing up for the December 2016 release of Star Wars: Rogue One. This film is unique in that it is not part of the follow-up trilogy that launched in 2015 with The Force Awakens. Instead, for the first time in Star Wars history there will be a stand-alone film in the anthology. Rogue One is set in the Star Wars universe in the time following the events of Star Wars: Episode III and before the events of Star Wars: Episode IV.

    In the upcoming film, the storyline focuses on a group of Rebel spies intent on stealing the designs for the Galactic Empires Death Star. The two primary groups to feature in the film are captured in the Star Wars: Rogue One Series of coins from the New Zealand Mint. Again, there are shared details and a common obverse in this release:

    • Arrives in Star Wars-themed black box with commemorative shipper and Certificate of Authenticity.
    • Limited mintage of only 10,000 coins!
    • Contains 1 Troy oz of .999 pure silver in proof.
    • Face value of $2 (NZD) is fully backed by Niue’s government.
    • The obverse side of each Star Wars Rogue One coin includes the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. The British monarch appears on the obverse of all commonwealth coins, and has since ascending to the throne in 1952. This depiction was created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley as the fourth-generation effigy of the Queen.

    As for the design features, there are only two coins in this release. One depicts the members of the Rebel Alliance, while the other features the forces of The Empire. Each coin, like the Force Awakens collection, has a brilliant colorized finish on the reverse. Design details are featured below:

    • The Empire Proof Coin: On the reverse side of the coin you’ll find a colorized design mixed brilliantly with the coin’s natural silver finish. The 2017 1 oz Niue Silver Star Wars Rogue One The Empire Proof Coin features the image of Director Orson Krennic standing in front of a group of the Empire’s most loyal Deathtroopers and Stormtroopers.
    • The Rebellion Proof Coin: 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, you’ll find the colorized design of rebel strike team members that include Jyn Erso, Captain Cassian, K-2S0, Chirrut Imwe, Baze Malbus, and Bodhi Rook.

    Star Wars: Classic Collection

    The original Star Wars trilogy of films, launched in the late 1970s, set the stage for what would become one of the greatest box office anthologies of all time. The original films gave the world many of the most beloved characters in the history of the franchise; many of which are still immensely popular today even in the face of countless new movies arriving in theaters from the collection.

    In the Star Wars: Classic Collection release, the New Zealand Mint offers silver and gold coins without colorized finishes to honor the original trilogy of films. As with other series from the New Zealand Mint’s Silver Star Wars coin collections, there are shared details and obverse design features in this collection:

    • Limited total mintage of just 10,000 coins!
    • Ships encapsulated in plastic in a protective black display case.
    • Features a Certificate of Authenticity.
    • Contains 1 Troy oz of .999 pure silver.
    • Face value of $2 (NZD) is legal tender in Niue.
    • The obverse bears the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. This image was designed in 1998 by Sir Ian Rank-Broadley, and captures Her Majesty in a fourth-generation depiction.

    Although there are a number of coins that have been released in this collection, JM Bullion currently stocks the 3rd and 4th coins in the Star Wars: Classic Collection series of Silver Star Wars coins. These designs include:

    • Star Wars Yoda Coin (3rd Release): Yoda is captured on the 2016 1 oz. Niue Silver Star Wars Classic Yoda coin as he appeared in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. He made his appearance when he trained Luke Skywalker in the ways of the force so he could better lead the Rebellion.
    • Star Wars R2-D2 Coin (4th Release): Without the spunky little R2-D2, lovingly referred to as just Artoo, it is conceivable that Luke Skywalker might never have met with destiny. It was Artoo’s determination and resourcefulness that helped guide Luke to the Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi in the open film of the Star Wars franchise, initiating his involvement with the Rebel Alliance.

    About Niue

    Silver Star Wars coins from the New Zealand Mint are issued for the nation of Niue. The island nation is located in the South Pacific Ocean, roughly 1,500 miles northeast of the nation of New Zealand, east of Tonga, south of Samoa, and west of the Cook Islands. The island itself is just 100 square miles in size and has a predominantly Polynesian population of around 1,190 people.

    Niue occupies a unique niche in the world order. The nation is a self-governing state that exists in free association with New Zealand. The vast majority of diplomatic relations for Niue are handled by the nation of New Zealand on behalf of the people of Niue, and the populace are citizens of New Zealand with Queen Elizabeth II serving as head of state in the capacity of Queen of New Zealand.
