The second film in the originalStar Warstrilogy was notable for the risks it took in terms of storytelling in a space opera adventure. As the Galactic Empire rampaged through the stars in search of the Rebels who had destroyed their ultimate weapon, the Death Star,The Empire Strikes Backserved up countless iconic moments from the first appearances of Yoda and Boba Fett to the shocking revelation from Darth Vader —“I am your father” —and not least the capture of Han Solo by the villains, who seal him in suspended animation. That unique moment is captured by the 2022 Antique Niue Han Solo in Carbonite 10 oz Silver Coin.


  • Arrives in aStar Wars-themed display box, encased in black velvet!
  • Issued in 2022, part of the New Zealand Mint’sStar WarsCollectibles series!
  • Limited mintage of only 1,000 pieces worldwide!
  • Contains 10 Troy oz of .999 pure silver.
  • Face value of $20 (NZD) backed by the state of Niue.
  • Includes a Certificate of Authenticity.
  • Obverse carries a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II.
  • Reverse side shows a sculpture of Han Solo frozen in carbonite.

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


On the coin’s obverse side is a legal tender portrait of the late Queen Elizabeth II, accompanied by the inscriptions “Elizabeth II,” “Niue,” “20 Dollars,” and “2022.” It also confirms the coin’s purity as “10 oz 999 Fine Silver” and bears the trademark and copyright of Lucasfilm Ltd.


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


The Empire Strikes Backoffered many memorable twists and turns, but there’s no denying that the freezing of the heroic Han Solo in “carbonite” was one of the most shocking. Most adventure films wouldn’t have been able to resist the temptation to solve that story beat with a last-minute rescue, but the secondStar Warsfilm gambled on a cliffhanger, a decision that contributed to its repetition as one of the best entries in the entire franchise.
