Characters from the Star Wars to appear on a nation’s currency for the 1st time ever!!! #StarWars

Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, Yoda and a cast of other heroes and villains from a galaxy far, far away, will join the Queen on coins issued by the South Pacific island state of Niue. Niue, a remote Polynesian state of only 1,400 people, normally uses New Zealand currency.

A set of 40 coins is being produced by the New Zealand Mint.As legal tender, the coins will have a face value of NZ$2 (£1), but the silver content in each is worth considerably more than that. The coins are primarily aimed at collectors and investors around the world in a bid to boost Niue’s flagging government coffers. Sets of four, each containing 1oz of silver, will sell for NZ$469 (£235)
