These Star Wars Coins Are Legal Tender… On Niue Island

The New Zealand Mint are readying some sets of legal tender coins in fan-bait Star Wars designs. I’m impressed less by the likeness of the Lucasoids than I am the multi-coloured nature of the coin designs. Why isn’t all money this prettied up?

I don’t know what the regulations on collector coin import-export are, but I’d imagine large numbers of these coins will be leaving the southern hemisphere one way or another.

So, if these are a hit, will we have an Empire set to look forward to? Then Jedi? Then – hurrah! – the prequels?
