The New Zealand Mint Star Wars Chibi Coin series continues with the third coin in the collection featuring R2-D2. As a fan-favourite droid, this one is sure to be popular!
A reliable and versatile astromech droid, R2-D2 has served Padmé Amidala, Anakin Skywalker, and Luke Skywalker in turn, showing great bravery in rescuing his masters and their friends from many perils. A skilled starship mechanic and fighter pilot's assistant, he has an unlikely but enduring friendship with the fussy protocol droid C-3PO.
The coin is made from 1oz of pure silver that has been shaped and coloured in the chibi art style. It is a legal tender coin, with the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II engraved on the opposite side. The coin is placed inside a specially designed case, moulded to the coin’s shape, for protection.
The outer box features more images of R2-D2 and a large window to allow for display of this precious collectible. A Certificate of Authenticity is printed on the box with the coin’s unique number in the mintage.
With only 2,000 of each coin being produced in our Chibi Coin Collection, we think this one might be in high demand!
