Star Wars: The Phantom Menace 1oz Silver Coin
A long time ago in a galaxy far far away...
STAR WARS. Although nobody believed in the first cosmic adventure of George Lucas in 1977 - studios, producers, even actors themselves - the Star Wars had become a cult in the history of cinematography for the next forty years. In 1999, a new wave of interest was aroused by a film called Episode I - The Phantom Menace whose story takes place in front of the original films from the 1970s and which is dedicated to the silver commemorative coin.
What is in the phenomenal success of the galactic saga? The Star Wars offered an originally conceived traditional story about a duel of good and evil that seemed to fall out of a fairy tale. We can find orphans who are destined to change the world, knights of light and darkness, and princesses in trouble. The trick orgy allowed viewers to visit strange exotic worlds and sit in the cockpit of a space fighter. Each shot then presented an infinite number of details - extraterrestrial aliens, droids, boats, instruments and animals, each of which tells their own story, and the galaxy's past has become a real living place full of miracles and adventures. Who would not want to lose there at least for a moment?
The reverse side of an unconventional rectangular coin is a film poster. Attractive coloring is accompanied by droids relief R2-D2 and C-3PO together with popular characters Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Qui-Gon Jinn, Queen Amidala, Jar Jar Binks, and Darth Maul. The composition is being closed by the film's logo. The obverse side of the coin carries the attributes of its issuer, which is the Pacific island of Niue: the name and portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, the year of issue of the coin 2018 and the nominal value of 2 DOLLARS (NZD). The officially licensed coin is the work of the New Zealand Mint.
The coin is placed in a thematic box and an original stand that will ensure its place of honor in your collection.
