Darth Vader Ultra High Relief Coin at NZ Mint

The latest coin release from NZ Mint features Darth Vader in “ultra high relief”, with extra depth to the engraving, and comes in a new style of coin case.

Check back on Friday when we’ll be interviewing NZ Mint about their manufacturing process… and will reveal their latest coins.

The unique Ultra High Relief effect is achieved by using cutting edge minting techniques which allow the image to rise much higher than the face of the coin. The process not only adds more depth to the coin’s design, but a deeper, brighter lustre which ensures that every millimetre of the intricate design shines through. It feels more like a tiny sculpture than a standard coin.

The coin is nestled in black velvet inside a high-quality Star Wars branded coin case – perfectly angled to display the 3D aesthetic of the coin. The stylised Certificate of Authenticity also sits within the coin case. Along with the Star Wars themed outer box, this coin would make a stunning gift.

There is a limited worldwide mintage of only 5,000 coins
