Why does this 1 oz. Silver Colorized Proof 2021 Star Wars: Faces of the Empire Darth Vader Helmet shaped coin belong in your collection?
The New Zealand Mint's Star Wars: Faces of the Empire Coin Collection launches with a release celebrating Darth Vader, one of the most recognizable faces in the galaxy! Originally a slave on the planet Tatooine, Anakin Skywalker took on the name Darth Vader after being lured to the dark side of the Force by Emperor Palpatine. The combination helmet and breathing apparatus created for the character, which serves as the "face" of Darth Vader, was inspired by the traditional headpieces worn by Japanese Samurai warriors.
Most Impressive Sculptural Design
Obverse: The obverse is adorned with the right facing effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II at the center, surrounded by the inscriptions "ELIZABETH II," "NIUE," "TWO DOLLARS" and "2021," with "1 oz 999 FINE SILVER" and the Lucasfilm Ltd. trademark curving below. The portrait of the Queen was created by renowned British sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley in 1998.
Reverse: The reverse is fully colorized black, featuring the distinctive triangular face plates and eye lenses of Darth Vader's visage, surrounded by a flared helmet.
