Why buy this 2019 $5 Niue Ultra High Relief 2 oz Silver Star Wars Helmets - Darth Vader?
The Star Wars Series has enamored moviegoers for decades, and one of its most famous characters is Darth Vader. Born Anakin Skywalker, he was a Jedi knight before being seduced to the dark side where he would go on to become one of the most powerful Sith Lords of all time. The American Film Institute named him the third greatest villain in cinematic history. The exceptionally well known character now becomes the first figure in the New Zealand Mint's new Star Wars Helmets Series. This shaped coin was struck in ultra high relief from 2 oz of .999 fine silver. It is part of a mintage of just 5,000 pieces, which is quite low given the popularity of the Star Wars enterprise.
Iconic Darth Vader Helmet Design
The obverse design is Ian Rank-Broadley's famous portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. The monarch is depicted in right-side profile wearing a tiara. Encircling the famous effigy are four sets of inscriptions. They include her name, "ELIZABETH II," the coin's country, "NIUE," its face value, "FIVE DOLLARS," and the date, "2019." Inscriptions that would typically appear on the reverse, "2 OZ 999 FINE SILVER" and the Lucasfilm copyright and trademark, appear below.
On the reverse is the design for which the coin is both named and shaped. The Darth Vader helmet is executed in fine detail, complete with large coverings for the eyes and parts that jut out in the back at jaw level. No Star Wars fan could hold the piece without remembering Vader's famous encounter with his son, Luke Skywalker.
Flawless MS70 with Black Core Holder and Exclusive Star Wars Label
This coin received Numismatic Guaranty Corporation's (NGC's) highest grade, Mint State 70, which means that it is perfect as seen under 5x magnification. NGC provided this grade on a label that features the Star Wars logo and set the coin in a sleek black core that suits the coin perfectly.
