The Star Wars universe is known both for its rollicking action and for unforgettable character designs. Darth Maul is an example of both, a character whose riveting visual design in The Phantom Menace instantly riveted fans and who brought to the screen some of the most thrilling lightsaber battles seen in the franchise to that point. The character went on to appear in a pair of animated shows and is now commemorated in playful Chibi caricature format by the 2022 1 oz Niue Silver Chibi Darth Maul Shaped Coin.

Part of the evil order of the Sith, sworn enemies of the Jedi Knights, Darth Maul was a man of few words but of striking appearance and deadly skill. Brought to life by actor and martial artist Ray Park, his agility and intricate saber work revolutionized action choreography in the Star Wars franchise, establishing a new benchmark for the swashbuckling, sword-swinging action sequences that had been a staple since the beginning. Though Darth Maul appeared to die in The Phantom Menace, the character proved irresistible to writers and fans and developed a further life in shows set during the Clone Wars.
The 2022 Niue Silver Chibi Darth Maul Shaped Coin provides a fun and colorful tribute to this Dark Side warlord, colorized and shaped in pure silver. JM Bullion ships this item in a Star Wars-themed box with a large display window and a Certificate of Authenticity that verifies its unique number in the mintage, with each shipment fully insured against loss or damage.
An effigy of Queen Elizabeth II features on the coin’s obverse side, confirming it as legal tender of Niue Island. This is accompanied by the inscriptions “Queen Elizabeth II,” “Niue,” “2022” and “2 Dollars,” along with confirmation of the coin’s silver content and the trademark and copyright of Lucasfilm, Ltd.
The reverse side is a colorized sculpture of Darth Maul. The “big head” style of Chibi caricature emphasizes his intricate tattoos and malevolent, villainous gaze.
