Anytime you saw Rebel forces take to the skies across the galaxy to battle The Empire, you would inevitably see the X-Wing Fighters of the Rebels countered by the TIE Fighters of The Empire. The TIE Fighter was the predominant Starfighter of the Imperial Forces and the term stands for Twin Ion Engines fighter.
These Starfighters were fast and agile, yet fragile as well. Knock out one of the two engines and the Starfighter would spin out of control and crash. The pilots manning the TIE Fighters of the Empire always wore black aerial helmets, just as depicted in the reverse design of these coins.
Queen Elizabeth II features on the obverse side of 2021 1 oz Niue Silver The Faces of the Empire TIE Fighter Pilot Shaped Coins. The effigy of the Queen shown here is the Ian Rank-Broadley design from 1998 and features the Queen wearing the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara.
In the reverse design of 2021 Niue Silver The Faces of the Empire TIE Fighter Pilot release, the coin has a black colorization applied throughout the image of the TIE Fighter Pilot’s helmet. The entire coin is shaped just like the helmet of the pilots who control TIE Fighters.
These 2021 1 oz Niue Silver The Faces of the Empire TIE Fighter Pilot Shaped Coins arrive in beautiful presentation boxes. When closed, the black box offers the identifying details of the release on its cover and comes with a viewing window to show off the reverse design. Open the box and you will find further information on the coin, with each box boasting a Certificate of Authenticity and a holographic sticker with the unique serial number within the release.
