Of the many twists and surprises offered up inThe Empire Strikes Back,one of the most memorable was the freezing of the heroic Han Solo in “carbonite,” a substance that kept him in suspended animation for transport. In a more typical adventure film of the day, it was the kind of event that would be resolved by a last-minute rescue before the end of the movie, but as the secondStar Warsfilm came to a close, Solo remained frozen and his fate uncertain. This iconic episode in the saga is celebrated by the 2022 Antique Niue Han Solo in Carbonite 1 oz Silver Coin.

  • Issued in 2022, part of the New Zealand Mint’sStar WarsCollectibles series!

  • Obverse side shows a sculpture of Han Solo frozen in carbonite.
  • Reverse carries a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II.

The 2022 Antique Niue Han Solo in Carbonite Silver Coin features a beautiful antique finish and a unique slab-shaped design. Provident Metals ships this item to you in a themed display box nestled in black velvet, with a Certificate of Authenticity that identifies its specific number in the mintage, fully insured against any possible damage or loss en route.


The coin’s obverse side is a sculpture of Han Solo in carbonite. It reproduces the cast of Harrison Ford’s face and a body double’s arms, legs, and torso that formed the original prop from the movie.


On the coin’s reverse side is a legal tender portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, accompanied by the inscriptions “Elizabeth II,” “Niue,” “Two Dollars,” and “2022.” It also confirms the coin’s purity as “1 oz 999 Fine Silver” and bears the trademark and copyright of Lucasfilm Ltd.


The first sequel to the originalStar Warsfilm became famous for its surprising twists and a degree of narrative risk-taking unusual for adventure tales and space opera. Featuring the villains of the Galactic Empire avenging their defeat at the hands of the heroes in the prior film,The Empire Strikes Backincluded one of the most famously shocking revelations in the history of film — Darth Vader’sI am your father”— and saw the heroic Han Solo captured by the villains and sealed in suspended animation.
