Art of Collecting
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is the last of the nine movie triple trilogy that bring an end to the story told over 42 years since its debut in 1977. New Zealand Mint, the licensed producer of Star Wars coins kept up its release with a trio of new issues.
The surviving Resistance faces the First Order once more in the final chapter of the Skywalker saga.
This officially licensed Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker coin collection features the heroic Rey, the dark warrior Kylo Ren and the delightful droids BB-8 and D-O.
Are you the first order or the resistance. Both of this 1 oz silver coin measures 40 mm in diameter and have a fantastic coloration.
The Kylo Ren coin has a deep orange background showing the storm troopers and the warriors of the first order. Also featuring Kylo Ren the main character in his darth vader suit both colored and matte creating a beautiful coin.
The Rey coin has a sky blue background, harnessing the color of the force. The main character Rey is joined by her allies of the resistance. Rey has a serious look both in her colored and matte finish on the coin. On the latter, she is holder her light saber preparing for war.
The obverse for both coins features the standard effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the inscriptions: “NIUE” – the issue country.
The coin arrives in a Star Wars branded box. Inside it is packaged in a acrylic coin case, ideal for display, making it a great memento for any Star Wars fan or collector.
The Certificate of Authenticity sits inside the box which confirms the coin as one of a limited worldwide mintage of only 5,000. Packaging and mintage is the same for both the Kylo Ren and Rey Coin.
The last of the trio release is the BB8 & D-O 1/4oz Gold Coin depicting both of these hit character from the movies in the same coin. The display is more classic and is targeted towards more hardcore Star Wars fans who follows it since it debuted.
