2017 Niue 25 Dollar 1/4-oz Gold Star Wars Classic C3PO NGC PF69UCAM First Struck - Black
Bring Home the Most Courteous Hero in the Galaxy!
In the world of Star Wars™, there is an endless supply of rough and tumble renegades -- rebels that fly by the seat of their pants and play by their own rules. And if you're a fan, you know that C-3P0™ is . . . not one of them. In fact, this protocol droid is about as by-the-book as you can get, programmed to aid and assist in the finer points of etiquette.
However, while he can a bit of a killjoy at times, this Anakin Skywalker-built droid is a fluent translator and expert communicator. And, when it counts, he can be just as heroic and swashbuckling as the rest of the rebels! So, as the New Zealand Mint's popular Star Wars coin series continues, it's only natural to give "Threepio" his time in the spotlight, minted in gorgeous gold!
- C-3P0 IS ON TASK, BUT NOT ALONE!-- This eighth gold release in the Star Wars 2016-2017 series features our favorite 3P0 unit in mid-consultation. Superb engraving brings C-3P0 and his surroundings to life in intricate detail. But look closely and you'll see a familiar sight -- R2-D2™ peeking in from the lower right!
- PROOF-MINTED IN HIGHLY PURE GOLD-- The artisans at the New Zealand Mint are known for creating gorgeous works of art, and these C-3PO coins are, quite literally, proof! Each beginning as a hand-selected planchet of 99.99% pure gold, these quarter-ounce proofs are struck multiple times by polished dies, resulting in razor-sharp, frosted details that float over mirror-like fields.
- OFFICALLY LICENSED NIUE LEGAL TENDER-- Your 2017 proof is officially licensed by Lucasfilm Ltd. -- a distinction that's stamped right into the coin! In addition, your proof is 25 dollars legal tender for the island nation of Niue, a fact reflected on the obverse along with Ian Rank-Broadley's profile of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
- CERTIFIED NEAR-FLAWLESS-- Your coin will come graded Proof-69 Ultra Cameo (PF69 UC) by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), a distinction that means your almost-flawless 2017Gold Star Wars C-3P0 Proof will showcase an impressive full strike and indistinguishable imperfections. In addition, your proof will be certified as One of First 60 Struck by NGC. Your proof will also be sonically sealed in an acrylic case with a special Star Wars label and black display core, giving you the best in protection and visual contrast while granting clear sightlines into every beautiful detail. Finally, your proof will arrive to you inside a black drawstring pouch with an official New Zealand Mint certificate of authenticity and all of the proof's original Star Wars-branded packaging!
- LIMITED MINTAGE PROOF -- Only 1,000 of these proofs will be minted for a galaxy of Star Wars fanatics!
