The New Zealand Mint’s Chibi collectibles series chose 2022 as the year to celebrate the legacy of the iconic Star Wars character Yoda, the Jedi Master who cemented his place in popular culture as Luke Skywalker’s guru inThe Empire Strikes Back.That choice was so popular that when the 2022 Niue Chibi Yoda Shaped 1 oz Silver Coin went on sale through the mint, it sold out in less than a week. Fortunately, you can still get your hands on this obviously coveted collectible through the team at Provident Metals.
The 2022 Niue Chibi Yoda Shaped Silver Coin uses an adorable Japanese-originated style of art and caricature — which, with a name meaning “little,” is perfectly suited for the diminutive Yoda — to capture the essence of its subject in pure silver. It comes with a Certificate of Authenticity that identifies its unique number in the mintage. Provident Metals ships each item fully insured against loss or damage, ready to display in your personal collection in a themed box with a large window and with the further protection of a custom acrylic case.
The coin’s obverse features a legal tender portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, along with the inscriptions “ELIZABETH II,” “NIUE,” “2022” and “2 DOLLARS.” It identifies silver content as “1 oz 999 Fine Silver” and shows Lucasfilm’s trademark and copyright.
Shaped and brightly colorized, a sculpture of the tiny but mighty Jedi Master Yoda comprises the coin’s reverse side. He wears humble brown robes and a friendly smile.
Yoda captured the imaginations of fans from the first moment of his humorous, profound, and awe-inspiring turn inThe Empire Strikes Back.Epitomizing the wise mentor, he became a solid favorite of the franchise as a whole, and continued to appear in new films and shows and connect with new audiences over the coming decades. The popularity of his latest commemoration by the New Zealand Mint is yet more proof of how strong and lasting the character’s legacy truly is.
