One of the most famous alien characters the entire franchise ever produced appeared inReturn of the Jedi.An ingenious example of design and effects work, Admiral Ackbar became a fan favorite, now celebrated by the 2022 Niue Chibi Admiral Ackbar Shaped 1 oz Silver Coin available from Provident Metals.

A classic profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II as designed by Ian Rank-Broadley is featured on the coin’s obverse side, identifying it as legal tender of Niue despite its shape.

Admiral Ackbar in a commanding pose, his imaged colorized and sculpted in the Japanese-inspired Chibi or “big head” style of caricature, comprises the coin’s reverse. The art style puts special emphasis on the admiral’s watchful, enormous eyes.
Admiral Ackbar made his first on-screen appearance inStar WarsEpisode VI:Return of the Jedi,an alien hero of the Rebellion against the evil Galactic Empire. A combination of mask work and puppetry, cutting-edge effects in 1983, brought the character to life and he became one of the most recognizable characters in the franchise. Ackbar’s courage and steadfastness in battling the forces of the Empire made him a fan favorite, and he has been a presence in various kinds of Star Wars-related media ever since, making him a natural subject for a Star Wars-themed silver collectible from the New Zealand Mint.
