Darth Vader Silver Note from NZ Mint
The sixth and final silver note coin in New Zealand Mint’s Star Wars character set features Dark Lord of the Sith, Darth Vader. Previous releases in this set included Luke Skywalker on the first silver note, followed by C-3PO & R2-D2 and Ben Kenobi, and then Han Solo with Chewbacca and Princess Leia. These coin notes are made from 5g of pure silver, and the graphics on the product are a combination of engraving and colour printing.
This impressive 5g pure silver coin note is coloured and engraved with the movie’s logo and two menacing images of Darth Vader. The note also contains its unique number in the mintage and is presented in a protective sleeve which includes details of the note’s authenticity.
The note’s obverse has the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and is legal tender in Niue.
Darth Vader is one of the six unique silver coin notes that make up the collection which also includes Luke Skywalker, Han Solo & Chewbacca, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Princess Leia, and R2-D2 & C-3PO.
You can display each note in the Star Wars: A New Hope Collector’s Album, which is included with the purchase of the Luke Skywalker Silver Coin Note. The album is Star Wars themed, with each page containing a character summary to complement the corresponding note.
