The Star Wars franchise, a juggernaut of science fiction content ever since its inception in the Seventies, continues to produce new ideas and characters. It’s particularly known for the vast roster of bad guys working for the Galactic Empire in the faraway galaxy of its setting, commemorated by the New Zealand Mint’s Faces of the Empire collection of shaped coins. The latest is the 2022 Niue The Faces of the Empire Hovertank Pilot Shaped 1 oz Silver Coin, now available from Provident Metals.
The 2022 Niue The Faces of the Empire Hovertank Pilot Shaped Silver Coin is sure to be a hit with Star Wars fans and avid collectors of well-crafted, unusual coins. Containing an ounce of pure silver, it comes to you in a custom-made acrylic capsule and a themed, compact case with a display window. Each coin has its own unique number as part of the mintage, and your shipment is fully insured by Provident Metals.
The sleek helmet of the Imperial Hovertank Pilot forms the coin’s sculpted reverse side. Despite its unusual shape, this coin is in fact legal tender of Niue.
The well-known Ian Rank-Broadley portrait of Queen Elizabeth II features on the coin’s obverse side, along with the inscriptions “Elizabeth II,” “Niue,” “2021” and “2 Dollars.” The obverse also bears the Lucasfilm copyright and the inscription “1 oz 999 Fine Silver.”
The Imperial Hovertank Pilots made their debut as part of the vast ranks of the Galactic Empire’s stormtroopers in the 2016 filmRogue One: A Star Wars Story.Specialized in driving assault combat vehicles that brought high-octane energy to key action scenes in that popular addition to the franchise, these baddies’ sleek and dangerous appearance made them immediate fan favorites and provided further proof of the Star Wars franchise’s gift for constant reinvention and elaboration on its themes and character designs.
