R2-D2 Shines in Both Gold AND Silver!

A short time ago in a galaxy really, really close by, GovMint.com brought together both of 2016's Star Wars™ R2-D2 Proofs in one incredible set! These are the third official Star Wars™ gold proofs struck for 2016 and the sixth silver release in the series, both featuring the irrepressible little droid R2-D2 on one side and the royal portrait of her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II on the other.

The gold R2-D2 Proof is a gleaming one-ounce coin struck in 99.99% gold and the silver Proof is struck in one ounce of 99.9% silver. Both are legal tender in Niue, an island nation located in the South Pacific Ocean. The gold coin bears a denomination of $200 and the silver coin has a face value of $2.

Both coins have been graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) as being in flawless Proof-70 Ultra Cameo (PF70UC) condition, a distinction that means your perfectly-graded proofs will have ZERO imperfections – showing all features and fields exactly as the engraver and mint intended. In addition, NGC has certified that each piece in your R2-D2 One-Ounce Gold & Silver Two-Piece Proof Set are First Struck (FS) coins, meaning that they were among the first struck by the mint and verified within the first 30 days of issue.

In addition, you will receive the original New Zealand Mint packaging for both coins, numbered Certificates of Authenticity AND a specially crafted wooden presentation case to house the set! Now is the time to make these R2-D2 Proofs a part of your universe. According to his friend and fellow droid, the ever-complaining C-3PO, “Artoo” is an overweight glob of grease. But in your collection, he will be a treasured addition in precious gold and silver!
