Ultra High Relief Coin at NZ Mint Carbonite Coin

The latest silver metal coin release from NZ Mint features Han Solo encased in carbonite, as seen in The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, in “ultra high relief”, with extra depth to the engraving, and comes in a new style of coin case. We recently interviewed NZ Mint and covered topics including their new “ultra high relief” coins and manufacturing processes – you can read than interview here.

Ultra High Relief 2oz fine silver coin featuring one of the greatest heroes of the Rebellion, Han Solo, frozen in carbonite.

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 branded Star Wars coin case –angled to display the 3D aesthetic of the coin. The serialised Certificate of Authenticity also sits within the coin case. Along with the Star Wars themed outer box, this coin makes a truly unique gift.

The worldwide mintage is limited to 5,000 coins, so hurry to get yours as all our previous Han Solo coins have sold out!
