The Force is strong in this one: GovMint.com releases exclusive legal-tender Darth Vader gold & silver coins

Everyone knows the Empire Strikes Back, but did you know the Empire Strikes Coins? Ok, that may be stretching the truth a bit. While the Galactic Empire didn’t actually strike these coins, they are legal-tender proof coins officially licensed by Lucasfilm Ltd. depicting everyone’s favorite villain, Darth Vader.

With a new Star Wars film, Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens, set for release Dec.18th, a new Darth Vader One-Ounce Gold Proof is the first in an exciting new legal-tender coin series issued by the New Zealand Mint. Each proof is certified and graded by the respected independent coin grading service, Numismatic Guaranty Corporation, and GovMint.com is the exclusive U.S. distributor for the Darth Vader One-Ounce Gold Proof.

But wait! As Master Yoda would say: “More to this story, there is.” In addition to the massive one-ounce gold proof, there are a limited number of quarter-ounce gold and one-ounce silver proofs also available. All the coins are legal-tender of the island nation of Niue, and each is issued with an official mint certificate of authenticity. The gold proofs are struck in 99.99% pure gold, and the silver proofs are 99.9% fine silver.

“Star Wars collectibles are among the most popular in the world, but rarely does a collector get a chance to own authentic legal-tender gold and silver coins with officially licensed Star Wars designs.” said Bill Gale, founder of GovMint.com. “We are honored to partner with the New Zealand Mint and Lucasfilm Ltd. to make these exciting Darth Vader gold and silver coins available to collectors.”
