One of the all-time most recognizable of all movie villains, Darth Vader riveted audiences of the original 1977 Star Wars from the first moment of seeing his intimidating black armor, hearing his mechanized breathing and booming voice, and watching him wield the strange powers of the Dark Side of the Force. From his first days as an avatar of the evil power of the Galactic Empire to his modern-day incarnation as the corrupted form of a once-promising hero, this Dark Lord of the Sith has never lost his air of menace and the frightful charisma that have made him an iconic fixture of a galaxy far, far away.

Darth Vader has been a presence in Star Wars for decades across multiple movie trilogies, stand-alone films, and television shows. The collective creation of numerous writers, producers, directors, and actors over that span of time, this powerful Dark Lord of the Sith — a dark mirror of the virtuous Jedi order that he helped to destroy — has maintained a remarkable continuity of character and has continued to terrify audiences in the 21st century long after it was revealed that his story ended in a kind of redemption in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. He has remained an awe-inspiring antagonist in latter-day films like Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
The 2022 Niue Silver Star Wars Darth Vader Coin showcases the great villain with the original-mint luster that comes with Brilliant Uncirculated quality, in a coin that contains a full ounce of Fine Silver. Each coin ships in either a plastic flip, protective tube of 25 coins, or box of 250 coins.
The obverse side features an official effigy of the late Queen Elizabeth II that verifies it as legal tender. This is accompanied by the inscriptions “ELIZABETH II,” “NIUE,” “2022” and “TWO DOLLARS.”
The reverse side shows Darth Vader wielding his signature lightsaber. The inscription “VADER” appears at his left set against a background silhouette, accompanied by a smaller inscription at the rim that confirms the coin’s weight and Silver content and shows the copyright and trademark of Lucasfilm.
