This shaped silver coin with its colorized reverse features the “face” of one of the Galactic Empire’s fearsome Stormtroopers from the Star Wars universe. It comes with a Certificate of Authenticity, packaged in a specialized acrylic protective capsule and a compact Star Wars-branded case that features a built-in display window, ensuring that it arrives safely and ready to be showcased as part of your collection. Despite its creatively shaped design, though, the coin is still legal tender, and your shipment is fully insured by JM Bullion.
The specific storm troopers commemorated by these coins appeared on the planet of Scarif in the film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, patrolling the shores of that far-off world in iconic action scenes. The sculpting and colorization of the pure silver coin replicates the distinctive look and design of the Scarif Stormtrooper helmet, an aesthetic that has captured the imaginations of fans and collectors all around the world since it made its first screen appearance.
As is the case with all the coins in the New Zealand Mint’s Faces of the Empire collection, this coin’s reverse side is comprised of the sculpted image of the Scarif Stormtrooper helmet, with no other inscriptions.
The obverse side features a classic profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, as typically found on Commonwealth circulation coinage, at its center. It’s encircled by the inscriptions “Elizabeth II,” “Niue,” “Two Dollars” and “2022,” and further accompanied by the inscription “1 oz 999 Fine Silver” and the “Lucasfilm Ltd.” trademark.
