From the first moment he appeared in the originalStar Warsin 1977, Darth Vader instantly captured the imaginations of audiences and became one of the most recognizable villains of what would become a powerhouse franchise and of the silver screen as a whole. Combining a powerful and menacing voice and spooky mechanized breather with an inspired visual design — featuring his intimidating black armor and mask and imposing physical stature — he was for many years the face of evil, with an extra layer of terror conferred by sorcerous powers derived from the Dark Side of the Force, making him a dark mirror of the virtuous and now-mostly-vanished Jedi Knights. The New Zealand Mint celebrates this unforgettable antagonist with the 2022 Niue Star Wars Darth Vader 1 oz Gold Coin.
The 2022 Niue Star Wars Darth Vader Gold Coin comes in Brilliant Uncirculated quality that preserves its original-mint brilliance and luster. It ships in a protective capsule, and Provident Metals tracks and fully insures each shipment against even the most remote possibility of loss or damageen route.
The coin’s obverse side features Ian Rank-Broadley’s world-famous effigy of the late Queen Elizabeth II, confirming it as legal tender. This is accompanied by the inscriptions “ELIZABETH II,” “NIUE,” “2022” and “25 DOLLARS.”
The coin’s reverse side features Darth Vader wielding his iconic lightsaber. The inscription “VADER” appears to his left, along with a smaller inscription that confirms the coin’s weight and silver contents and the copyright of Lucasfilm at the rim.
The New Zealand Mint has commemorated multiple iconic characters of a galaxy far, far away with its popular and magisterial series of Star Wars collectibles. Darth Vader is undoubtedly one of the most prominent figures to receive this treatment, a famous villain not just in the context of the franchise but in movies generally. Though his backstory and redemption have been fleshed out over many years in movie trilogies, stand-alone films, and shows, his black armor, mechanized breathing, imposing stature, and sepulchral voice have always come together to keep his menace intact for succeeding generations of fandom.
